With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated to the planes. I’m using wood I have on hand. This component is made from 1/2” birch ply, poplar and edged with mahogany.
Now for that vacant slot …........ that’s where a Stanley 604 1/2 is supposed to go. Not in a rush for it as I still have to clean up the #7, #8, the 12 1/2 scraper and the little 110 block plane. So no hurry in contacting me to say you have one at a very reasonable price ;) Ah, I’ve been looking for the last two weeks on the Bay, but haven’t found a suitable candidate.
