I recently acquired some Stanley 45 plane cutters, but since they didn’t have the original box, I decided to make my own. RG, reminded me of his cutter box which was part of the inspiration for my version.
My design has two rows of cutters, with room for a few more in the future. It’s made out of walnut which I found in the scrap bin and resawn into three 1/4 pieces fitted with 1/8 dados to hold the blades. A simple latch keeps the lid closed. Finished with BLO. It’s a pretty basic one-day project. Now that I have a number of cutters for my Stanley 45, I look forward to making more use of the tool.
The last image shows my cleaned-up Stanley 45 plane. For more information on this style of plane see here.
