Building a storage cabinet/hutch to put over my workbench and ran into a small problem… to get the height I needed for the saw till I had planned on putting into it, I was going to block access to the water shutoff valve and pressure regulator. After much internal debate over the many options available I decided to go with a removable hand plane till. Was going to put a 1/4” panel in the door but noticed I had a piece of plexiglass that was just about the right size so used it instead along with an antique knob I had after restoring a wardrobe that my sons grandmother gave him. Yes, those are genuine chrome plated handles as well…lol Built the frame clamp a couple of months back and hadnt had a chance to use…was happy to see it works as advertised. Not sure where to go next though. The door for saw till or the facings for the saw blade storage pullouts…choices choices choices

Nice job on the storage area. You can never have enough it seems. Great idea on the removable till, that sure beats leaving the valve in the open and wasting the space. Also, I would rather have a plexi. panel in the door than a solid one.

buster that turned out great,the whole hutch did.nice use of the plexiglass can you teach me to do miters that good?

that was a heckuva game,but i don’t think its in the water cause its not helped me any.

all i got done today is sweeping a couple mountains of sawdust and debris up and putting on the burn pile.

You sure are getting your storage sorted out
Being able to see what is inside is a big help.
I predict that this will not be your first plane till
They breed, I swear they do. :)

There has gotta be some major truth to that Jamie….in six months, I went from just having my grandfathers plane to having four. If they breed that quickly….oh my

Buster you got to keep a keen eye
Storks with a #4 1/2 & a #5 will be the first to circle :)
They sure can mess up the layout.

Wait until you go to a garage sale and see a neglected
old Stanley or the like and it will be “Please Mom can I take
it home?” LoL
