My wife just made me a new chisel roll as a prototype to test out. She’s considering making them available for sale down the road, but she wanted to make me one to see how it worked out. She even made it in this cool “wood grain” fabric that she found, which is kind of neat. Sure beats plain old canvas!
It fits quite a few chisels (my entire set of carving chisels), and has some room for more. In practice I think we’re considering removing some of the space between the two sides, to make it a little safer to get chisels out, but I’d be happy to throw this in my toolbox and take it somewhere like Port Townsend for a woodworking class or something.
The chisels are secure when rolled up because the blades pinch together in the middle when tied up, and makes it very unlikely for them to slip out. Plus putting them in handle first helps you know what chisel to grab, prevents the very sharp blades from tearing up the bottom of the pocket.
She was curious if anyone would be interested in these (with different fabric probably, but she has enough to make at least one more). So if you’re interested, please send me a note and we can chat.
