I have recently journeyed into Hand Tools and this was made to accommodate all the Hand Tools I acquired throughout the process as well as allow for some room to accommodate my new addiction. I basically put the cart before the horse…haha. Since I’ve only been woodworking for a couple years and made a few small projects before this, it was my first “major” attempt at building something of quality. I learned alot in the process and am continuing to learn the right way of doing things from folks like Shannon Rogers’ Hand Tool School (which for what it’s worth, I highly recommend) and The Wood Whisperer.
It’s made of African Mahogany and Curly Maple. The finish was the same Marc Spagnolo used in his “Pop the Grain” episode – Shellac with Transtint dye and then 3 coats of Arm-r-Seal. The shelf for the hand planes was taken from an article in Fine Woodworking.
Appreciate all comments.
