Now that I’ve picked up a few more saws and am starting to build some planes I felt I needed a good place to keep them. It’s nothing fancy just some left over Baltic birch plywood and some scrap hardwood from a dumpster dive. pretty much the same deal with the square till, just some hardwood scraps. I used a french cleat to keep them on the wall. I really need to get going on building those planes!

Turned out great. Good job on saving the hardwood from the dumpster. I hate to see good wood go to waste.

-- You will never build it unless you try. The second one always turns out better.

Fine till.
And what a fine collection of squares.
What is that plane on the shelf? It looks like a no five that has been shortened down…
Best thoughts,

Hi Mads,
Yes that is a cut down bailey #5 jointer plane. My dad gave me that when I took an interest in woodworking (I was 11 years old) It was way too heavy and long for me so he cut it down to make it more manageable to use as a bench plane. He was a sheet metal worker too, but also was a great woodworker. I inherited some of his tools when he passed away. I have four brothers I had to share the tool inheritance with. Every time I pick up a tool whether it was from my dad or not I get misty eyed thinking of him and the love he had for us boys as well as the love he gave us for working with the tools. Many fine memory’s about this man who after marrying my mom adopted five boys, gave us his name and loved us as if we were his very own blood.

Hi Ted,
What a wonderful story, and what a wonderful man your father seemd to be.
That plane must be your forever favorite.
I think it looks quite cool like that, perhaps a new fashion is on it’s way, it have a touch of Japanese pull plane look since the blade is so fare back.
Thank you for the sweet story,
Mads
