Roll-Top Chisel Case
The solid-wood construction of this chisel case not only protects and organizes your chisels, but is also a handsome addition to your shop.
When it comes to woodworking, most woodworkers put themselves in a category of either using hand or power tools. But no matter what type of woodworker you consider yourself, a good set of bench chisels is a necessity in any shop. Often though, chisels tend to get buried on a cluttered bench. Or worse yet, roll off the bench and onto the floor. Keeping your chisels safe and clean is where this chisel case shines. The most distinguishing feature of this case is the tambour door. When closed, the door keeps dust and chips out and protects your chisels. The door slides in a track to reveal the storage area for the chisels. While the tambour door looks challenging to make, breaking it down into a few simple steps makes it much more approachable. The chisels rest in a pair of cradles that hold the butt of the handle and the blades. While we designed these cradles to hold four sizes of chisels, this configuration is easily customized for your brand and size of chisels.

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.
