Due to being rained in and while waiting for some wood for the next project to acclimatize to my shop I have been filling in my time by reorganizing (just like being back with the company prior to retirement). As part of this I have built (made?) a storage rack for my small planes and shaves. They previously were just laying on the tool shelf with the larger stuff and got knocked about once in a while.
The piece is made from quilted makore for the platen and chamoire mahogany for the 3/16 X 3/16 support strips and 1 inch mahogany for the support angles.
The last photo is of the guilty party – the acclimatizing Peruvian walnut (don’t know the correct name) and 1/4 sawn and highly figured white oak. These will be transformed into a pair of arts and crafts floor lamps with enough leftovers for something else – hopefully not any more tool racks or whatever.
