Got a few new planes so it was time to make a till to get them in a proper place. Got a LN #7, #62 LA Jack, #4 smoother, block & rabbet block, and a LV medium shoulder. Other planes are on the shelf that couldn’t sit flat. The case is made from pine that I had on hand. Made up a few panels for the sides, back and shelves. Jointer plane really improved my panel making. Dowel joinery throughout but the drawer I’m making for the bottom will be dovetailed. The till portion is made from plywood with dividers set for each plane. This was actually pretty easy and I’m glad I made a nice home for these tools. (couldn’t get the last pic straight but you get the point.)

What keeps the blade clear of the plywood base? I didn’t see spacers.

I just glued thin wood strips near the toe or front of the plane. Very thin just enough to lift the blade because you’re right before i did that the blades were catching the plywood.
