Just in time for the holidays, we have received our first shipment of our USA-made canvas tool rolls, which are available for immediate shipment. The tool rolls are made by the same factory that makes our workshop waist apron, so the build quality and stitching is immaculate.
The price is $39 plus domestic shipping. Also, I’ve been meaning to mention that we now offer free shipping on orders more than $100. (Maybe you need three tool rolls?)
These tool rolls are based on one that I used many years ago to schlep my tools all over the world. Most tool rolls are not designed for small hand tools; they are instead designed for a huge graduated set of wrenches or auger bits. This tool roll is designed for smaller tools: chisels, knives, marking tools, rulers, awls, cutting gauges, screwdrivers and the like.
The tool roll has 18 pockets, so it will hold a lot of stuff. The longest tool it will hold is about 11” long – plenty long enough for most tools.
The tool roll also has two foldable flaps that cover the handles of your tools and prevent them from falling out during traveling. The whole thing cinches together with a webbed cotton strap and two nickel O-rings. Once cinched, your tools are protected.
This tool roll is great for travel. Or for protecting your tools in a tool chest. We are thrilled to offer this tool roll as part of our line of canvas gear. We have two more canvas products coming next year that will be great for owners of a tool chest or tool cabinet.

Interesting that you did not use the Crucial brand for the tool roll
All of our sewn goods are sold under the LAP logo. It is just for consistency. It doesn’t mean anything.
Looks great (and always nice to see that Minnich logo).
Do you have a recommendation for storing rasps, or plan to make larger versions of these rolls down the road?
If you plan on using something like this on rasps and/or files, they need some kind of plastic cover/sheath first or they will literally chew through the edges. I got a reinforced one that has a piping stitched over the waxed canvas edge and it pretty quickly chewed through the piping and is slowly eating through the canvas. Especially on my main rasp.
Protection is needed for sharp stuff in fabric tool rolls. I took an idea from Stan Covington and recycled heavyweight plastic clam shell packaging for power saw blades.
Appreciate that insight, Steve; I typically keep covers on any auger bits and chisels that are kept in tool rolls. Although I use Texas Heritage rolls, which have been incredibly durable no matter what I toss in them.
I wonder how their rolls would do with rasps. I had hoped cloth would suffice; sounds like not.
Looks outstanding but I’m having a hard time discerning 18 pockets in the images above. Are some of them hidden?
Order placed. Follow-up question: is the canvas waxed? Humidity and rust is a problem where I am on the East Coast.
It is not.
Otter Wax makes a easy to use canavas wax
Looks like six large pockets & twelve smaller pockets on the top of the six – so eighteen… I do like the flaps as well. It would be nice to have a straight chisel roll made in this manner as well.
You are correct about the pockets.
Ah, got it, thanks!
Perfect cinch! I’ve used it occasionally before on tool roles but learned the technique from an old cowboy when I packed mules in the high Cascades in Washington State.
These look great. I ordered one and am looking forward to using it. Do you have a recommendation for storing chisels (or marking knives) with the handle or edge in the pocket?
You can do it either way. If you store with the blades in the pocket, you might want to put an edge guard on the tip to avoid holes in the tool roll.
I appreciate the reply. Thank you!
Been wearing my waist apron daily for about six months with no signs of wear. Love the canvas, the stitching, all of it. Looking forward to a tool roll.
Would be nice to have a roll made for auger bits with a few extra small pockets for auger accessories.
I will be using mine for my point bits and spoon bits (don’t have any spoon bits yet but I am looking)
The Grammercy tools spoon bits are nice
