After buying my new router plane a few weeks ago, I decided that I needed to make something for it to sleep in at night. So I found some scrap pine around the shop, some quick measurments, broke out the dovetail saw and about 4 hours later… I was done the construction and assembly. The next day I put 3 coats of amber shellac on it and filled it up. I cut my shellac to about a 1.5 lb/cut. I like that I used the router plane to make cut out where the plane itself sits. It was alot of fun. Now… to buy the plow plane…..

Great work man. I love well-organized tool cases. And the dovetails really up the quality, for a project like that I feel like most people (self included) would just do butt joints with nails. But I guess if you own a router plane, old-school craftsmanship is expected!

Oh, that’s nice! My router plane sees it, and I’m in trouble…

That’s the most spoiled router plane I have ever seen. I can see it’s happy enough to have had a baby as well.

Great work.

Eye candy for sure !
Great dovetails and hardware and I like the knot inclusion in the lid . It adds a special touch to the box and makes it more appealing overall. A little bit of old world Craftsman charm : )
