Needed some way to take care of my Veritas small plow plane and ensure it lasts 100+ years. This box is made from scrap white oak. The logo is burned onto the front of the box.
The cradle is all custom cut and allows the plane to fit in the box with the fence at any distance and the plane fits with any of the blades (tongue and groove or wide blades too) so if I am in the middle of a project and need to store everything without losing my adjustment I can do so. The box is about 1.5” wider than it might otherwise need to be, but that’s okay.
Most of the blades sit in that “block” which has a little nesting shelf. With the lid on, the box can be flipped upside down and shaken around and nothing will fall out of its spot. The T&G blades have their own special box…was going to do that for all the blades but it was too much work!
