I guess you could say this is another installment in tills for the space challenged shop. ;-)
I got the idea from a picture I found in a magazine shops, could have been fine woodworking. I had planed to put another shelf below it to hold my card scraper sharping jigs but decided to change the location to a small spot by the door and changed it up. It will hold 9 scrapers or thin things and 4 tools that will fit in the 3/8 holes. One hole is blocked in this location but figured I’d add the 4th hole anyway.
For the picture I used a marking gauge but I’ll most likely use 2 drawboard tools one the top and my burnisher on the bottom. The wood is cheery, I recently bought some old rough cut a local guy found in his bard when cleaning it out. The boards were all cupped good but I’m finding if I split them I can still get 3/4 out of most if it.
The size is a little 13” X 2.5 deep and 6.5 wide at the bottom. The two rails are inset 2.5 inches. The slots are cut at 45 but I think you could get away with 30 if you had the space.
