I needed a better way of storing the planes when not in use. I did not want to leave them out in a till as they will rust with the changing temps/humidity. And, I have a new I-Box box joint jig that was simply screaming to me. So, here are the new ‘when not in use’ boxes for my planes, a 4, 5 and 7. Made from poplar, foam inserts with cut outs, felt liners. Sliding tongue and groove tops that when closed fit almost as good as the glued up finger joints. I can even through in some of those moisture packets to help prevent rust. Thanks for looking.

Nice boxes. Those planes are worth protecting. I hope the foam doesn’t hold the moisture. Great job.
