When I’m bored I either build another box or clean/organize the shop. This week I did both.I wanted to see if I could do the Shipwright hinges in thicker stock so I built this box (guess it is really a till?) to house my planes and card scrapers. The hinges turned out perfectly! I used a piece of foam floor underlayment to line the bottom to protect my plane blades, built the whole thing from 1×12 pine shelf scraps, added the lid chain (shop made chain), finished with BLO and wax, and put my leather ‘feet’ under it. Now I’m bored again! Thanks to all my LJ friends for all the ideas, help, and inspiration! I appreciate it.
