Hey everyone hope all is well on this Friday evening. Well since I have been lucky enough to begin setting up my new workshop I could not help looking at the scraps of pine used mostly just for mounting more tools to the wall and then….....I had brainstorm….hmmmmm?? How about trying a handplane till??!

So even though the cheaper store bought pine is not the most desirable material to do any sort of cabinetry….I decided to get on with things…and see where I ended up.

I have had this idea in the back of my mind for awhile….of having a till…something that really might give a nice stage to the tools….whether it be handplanes, saws….etc. So I made a smaller more economy version for the 5 nice handplanes I do have…..and my design went on from there.

I handrew out all of the shapes, duplicated then copesawed each. For the crown and bottom I simply used the ole handy dandy art class tracing paper…then rubbing on the copy to the other side…I love to get so technical with my trusty tigondaroga pencil….lmao!

Everything just kinda flowed as I went…used really what I had…..hey…this wood hobby thing gets expensive…lol

Plywood to the back and also the dish to hold on the planes. I ripcut all the tracking pieces which was nice handsaw accuracy practice…better than I have done in the past…so getting there..lol

This was a very enjoyable project and the final output holds the planes very nicely. It’s a first for me and I learned a lot in the process. I once more really went with the approach of using feel and instincts…..also patience…like the part where I go…..oh…..I really need to by some….MORE CLAMPS…....lol…...kinda would help the glue up process….on cupped cheap pine….lol….But…..oh….all these rules anyways…lol

I also dabbled with a little carving to give the piece a little ornamentation with my nice pfiels set.

So there you have it….my mighty pine plane till, I hope someone may enjoy this and get your own great ideas going. Always enjoy hearing from my LJS buddies and seeing your great work.

Thanks for anyone that dropped in to click and look….thank you for all of your great projects as well as inspiration.

CHEERSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Friends!

Joe

Nice! The only problem is there isn’t any extra room for another plane, whatever that may be. Great project, thanks for sharing.

that’s a great till. I’d need about 30 of them, but that would be ok. A great way to display your planes.
