I'm no expert, but to me a "full set" is every size and shape available....
I'd leave room for not only lots of other shapes but different sizes in
those shapes too.
Maybe make it with some sort of expansion in mind.
I've been slowly building up my set of bench chisels. I've been bying
the "blue steel bench chisels" from The Japanese Woodworker
(usual/nominal disclaimers apply). They're not cheap, but I like
them, and I've been very happy with the quality and performance.
The question I have is this: What do the experts here consider a "full
set" in terms of widths for a set of bench chisels? I've got 1/8",
1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1-1/4", and 2". There's another 7 or 8 widths
I could buy (e.g 3/16") , but I don't feel compelled to. Are there
any "must have" widths?
The reason I'm asking is this: I'm designing a wall cabinet to hold my
fine woodworking tools ( planes, chisels, saws, &tc.). I'd like to
feel confident that I'm getting the cabinet laid out right before I
Thanks a heap,
