Tool cabinet ‘old wine in old boxes’...
As some of you have seen, I bought some old planes (Stanley and Record), mainly from England.
So I desided to build a trditional cabinet for them. BUT – I had some old wine boxes in the workshop, and could not stop to play with this new recycle idea… So here are the result!
As you can see on the photos all are made from some scrap wood, and all I had to buy was some piano hings and a lock mecanism. All are are glued, simply shot with visible holes with a nail gun, and at the end tree layers on varnish. I used the back of the box as front, and put a 9mm plywood in the back to be sure to have the strenghs to hold the planes.
I’m planing now to make some more, acually to make it into a system for the whole wall, in that way it will be easy when I’m going to move one day, all will be in handy size boxes.
It will all be hung on a wall cleat system / French cladding.
Something like this.
Look here at Wine box, plane cabinet 2. and Wine box, plane cabinet 3 , Wine box, plane cabinet 4.' .
And as you can see, I selebrated with a glass of is cold white wine.
[For the nerds: Door: 2 x no 100 squirrel tail handle mini planes, 2 x no 100 mini planes, Stanley block plane 9 1/5, Rapier 14 (Stanley no 130), Record 130 rebuild for chisel plane, Stanley block planes 60 1/5, Stanley 220, Stanley 102, mini plane with shaving blade, Hobbies mini plane, Footprint schisel plane and a Veritas apron P2207. Cabinet: Record no 6, Stanley 75 bullnose, Darex (Stanley 90 J) bullnose, Record no 5, Stanley no 4 corrigated sole, Stanley no 2 sweetheart (she sure are sweet), Stanley no 4, and a Stanley no 3. Finally hanging from the planehanger a Record no 7.]
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
