Wall Hanging Plane Till

This comes from Chris Gounour’s plans in Fine Woodworking magazine, modified to work in my shop. Turned out to be nice, safe storage for the planes. I didn’t add the shelf he has on the bottom of his, thinking that I could always add it later.

The case of the till is made from sapele, with the back made of Baltic birch plywood. Finish is sprayed shellac.

The planes are a Lie-Nielsen bronze #4, a Lie-Nielsen #5 Jack Plane, a Lie-Nielsen #8 jointer plane, a Lie-Nielsen #51R Shoot board plane, a Veritas Low Angle Block Plane with tote and handle, and a Stanley Bailey Low-Angle Block Plane, as well as some Lie-Neilsen screwdrivers, and a Veritas Large Shoulder Plane.

Nice! that is some serious hardware there. How about a LN #62?

You know what they say – Go big or go home! LOL.

What do you think a LN #62 would add over the Veritas low-angle block plane?

Blade width, mass, and length….seems like a versatile plane, from what I gather. Dont currently have one. Seems like LN also makes a low angle #7 too.

Edit: the 62 is roughly the same size as a #5.

Nice planes, and the finish on the till blends really well with our other tool storage above.
Looking forward to stocking up my tool chest with some LN planes in the near future.

I agree – a jack plane is “needed”. Either the LN low angle, or the #5 1/2 if you want a real beast. I’d probably go with the #5 1/2. Its frog is interchangeable with the #8. So you can get the #5 1/2 with a high angle frog. That way, between the #8 and the # 5 1/2, you’d have a regular and a high angle frog.

As for the other spot, given what planes you already have, plus a jack, seems like the LN scrub plane is the next logical option. At least that is how I’d go about it. But then again, I can come up with a reason why I need every single plane Lie-Nielsen sells…

Scrub plane. Interesting thought.

I do have a high angle frog for my #4 (I work a lot with sapele, and tear out can be an issue). The 5-1/2 is an interesting thought. Never seen one (though I’m no plane expert).

Yeah, the Lie-Nielsen’s really are special.

I take back my previous comment about the interchangeable frogs between the #8 and #5 1/2. The #8 is actually a 2 5/8” wide blade, whereas the #5 1/2 has a 2 3/8” blade (same as the #7 jointer, not the #8).

Doc, careful, don’t look at any more planes, you might run out of room in this till. Or maybe build a second one??
Looks great, thanks for the post.

Great looking till. I agree with allandcarr a nice shoulder plane would fill out your collection well.

No room for a second till (Had to strain to find any room for this one).

Shoulder plane is a real thought.

Why the bevel up jack instead of bevel down?
