I knew when I started buying these chisels that eventually I would have make a till for them. They are vintage Stanley 700 series with my new London Pattern handles made from beetle kill ash from my property. This is a second set of chisels sharpened at 25° while the other set, Stanley 60s remains sharpened at 30°.
So the home is started. Then I got inspired...
It will be a few days before I finish the lid so I can add to this post. It will be a loose lid with a large Celtic knot in the center and basket weave along the sides. Below you see two pieces, front and back. The lid is 1/4" thick so the edge of the lid will be the top border while the border you see here will be the bottom border. Stay tuned.
