« Part 2: Making the Doors Part 3 of Wall Hung Tool Cabinet series Part 4: Fitting out the Interior #2 »

First thing to go in the interior is the plane till. I’m using 1/4” birch plywood supported by 3/4” fir plywood. The till supports will be glued and screwed in along with the upper shelf (this will give some added support to the back when mounting on the wall). Everything else will be screwed in so it is will be easy to modify or change.

Laying out the planes.

Supports glued in.

Till in and separators installed

Lower insert glued up and fit. This will provide strage for block planes and smaller planes and will also have a couple of small drawers.

Upper shelf and doors installed.

I need room on the table, time to hang the cabinet.

Brackets installed for spokeshaves and marking devices.

Chisel storage will be inside the door.

Everything is fitting in very well. I do have one problem. I have a 12 1/2 scraper plane and I have not been able to come up with a way to store it yet. It doesn’t fit on the till very well and I don’t have room for it in the lower storage. I’ll solve that problem in the next installment.

Nicely done Bruce. Glass doors maybe?
