I have made a promise to myself to get organized this year I have begun. I seen this in a magazine I think last year and cut it out because I thought hanging the planes from boot laces was a unique way to store the planes. I used poplar, pine plywood and a little birch because I had it on hand. I haven’t cut dovetails in a while so I decided to do it on this and surprisingly they did not turn out to bad. The finish was an afterthought and man does it shows. I had a small amount of conditioner and guess what? Not enough It took to much time applying the stain and the conditioner obviously dried causing most of the irregularities, frustration was the rest. In hindsight, this could have been partially assembled, then finished and maybe it would have looked better. The good thing is it is in my shop and will serve its purpose and for that I am happy.
Happy Holidays All.
