Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Stock
I used pine boards two and a half cm thick and fifteen cm wide
Tools ,Table saw ,Cordless Drill ,Sander Electric planer
Some sanding paper and wood screws
Step 2: Preparing the Boards
I cut the boards to the desired length on the table saw,then using the electric planer made the boards flat.
Using an orbital sander I smoothed the surface of the wood.
Step 3: Shaping the Sides
I cut a curve in the sides for aesthetic reasons.
Step 4: Assembly
The top and bottom are connected to the sides using a little wood glue and wood screws.
Make sure to check with a square and see if the boards meet at the correct angle.
Then the back board is added .
A narrower piece of wood is glued in front of the back board leaving a space of two centimeters between them ,this is the groove where the chisels will be placed.
Step 5: Patching Screw Holes
I used a two part wood filler to cover the holes left by the screws
I then sanded the excess .
Step 6: Paint ,Sand,Paint
I painted the shelf with a water based paint.
The wood grain became quite rough so i had to sand the surface and paint a second coat on the entire piece
Step 7: Organise
Hope this instructable helps you to get those chisels in order.
Have fun in the workshop.
