Just a little something to keep my mind occupied today. I’m not one to necessarily follow plans to the letter but I also don’t like to reinvent the wheel. So I searched for some information on plane tills and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of information on the web. So I tossed something together form 1/2 Birch ply.
Nothing at all fancy about this, simple butt joints, a little glue, a few brads and some screws. I was going to get real elaborate with it and make drawers, make it so the till could be hinged up to reveal a “hidden” compartment behind. I even had the walnut sorted and picked out that I was going to use. Then Ockham’s Razor hit me, “The simplest solution is often the right solution.” Time for plan B.
It’s attached to the wall with two French Cleats. I left the sides open so that I could use it to store fences, wax, etc behind the till.
Like I said, not much to get excited over but it serves a purpose and I now have an empty cupboard that I can use for something else other than hand plans.
