My landlord came home from a family vacation with what appears to be a Stanley Type 14 (1929-30). I made this blade safe storage box. All you need to add is a small piece as a spacer at the middle of the bottom. This keeps the cutting edge clear of the bottom during storage.
The box was made from a single piece of 1×3 x 36” oak resawn to 1/2”. The cutoff is 5/32” and usable. The sides are 15-1/8” & 2-9/16” and ate all but about 1/8” of a 36” board. Good I use a TK blade. The resaw finish was smooth and clean for gluing without sanding.
The bottom was a piece of scrap 1/2” birch ply cut 14-1/8” x 2-9/16”. The plane shoe is 14” x 2-1/2” so the fit is just right. In the middle of the inside bottom I added a 1/4” x 3/4” x 2-9/16” jatoba center bar to keep the blade away from the bottom.
I used 3/8” oak hole plugs set 1” in from the sides & ends for feet.
No fingers were harmed in the creation of this project!
