Plane till

I’ve been lazy about posting projects but I have enjoyed checking out what all the woodchucks out there have been doing. This is a simple cabinet I built awhile back to hold planes and sharpening supplies. Made it out of some southern yellow pine I bought rough sawn from a local sawmill. It follows the theme of using native yellow pine in the shop where I can. Like most of the things I make, I didn’t have a plan. I worked from the wall space I had available and the materials I had to work with.

I want to thank Div, Mads, Dennis, and others for getting me to clean-up and tune up some of my old planes. There is really nothing like making fine ribbons of shavings with a nice hand plane.

The lower cabinet was originally built and posted as a cabinet for a small metal lathe I had purchased. I decided it was just too nice of a cabinet for that so I made a different top and use it for storage and modified a metal cabinet for the lathe. The small walnut 21 drawer cabinet was something my Dad made many years ago and I ended up with and am very proud to have.

Wow you’re right Ken, that lower cabinet is WAY to nice for metalwork. Your local pine looks very nice :)
Would you show us a close-up of that drawer cabinet your father made?

Great job. I’m really interested in making something like this to organize my small shop in a more user-friendly way. Thanks for the inspiration!

Should have left some space for more planes and chisels, they seem a little addictive. But nothing like an excuse to make another nice piece for the shop when the time comes. Looks like it could double as a knick-knack rack for the missus when the time comes to expand and looks good enough to go anywhere in the house.

Very nice cabinets Ken.

The lower one is indeed very nice.

As the one on the right (your dad’s I assume) looks fantastic.
I am also on the camp asking for a picture or two.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Outstanding till. I love the smell of yellow pine. And even after a 100 years you cut it and the litter knot smell comes right back. Nice looking planes to.

Great looking till. Is that a 112 scraper plane? Maybe the one above a vaiable curve bottom plane? That is one nice collection!!! Enjoy them, looks like you know how to use them!

As usual you make things of a super quality and good materials, things that will last for generations.
Thats a wonderful till, and the combination with machinist cabinet and your fathers little wonderful drawer cabinet – wauuuuuu – that’s what I call order! I love it.
Smiles my friend, for you and the family.
Best of my thoughts,

Very nice and still room for three more planes. There is nothing wrong with a nice wood cabinet for a lathe although it fits in nicely with that Gerstner set up and the little cabinet your dad made. Great to have something with family history.
