Leather Tool Holder
Create rugged, great-looking tool holders with just a few tools, some scraps of leather, and an afternoon.
Purchased leather tool holders make it easy to both protect and transport edge tools like chisels, scrapers, and small planes. The only problem is that these tool holders are expensive and usually designed to accommodate a specific set of tools. The good news is you can easily make your own custom tool holders. The techniques you’ll use are detailed in this plan. In the photo, you can see how to combine these techniques to make a chisel roll, block plane pouch, and scraper wallet. Of course, you can also mix and match those techniques and these ideas to design your own tool holder.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
