Thank you all.
Yes it’s wonderful when a simple idea, can do the trick.
I think I’ll make a few, just so I can ‘hang arround’ the workshop…

I just noticed this project again. This give me an idea for a way to store my hand planes that I had not thought of. I think that I will have to play with this idea a bit to see what I can come up with.
