This was a project that I came up with after I had after I had built my Travel Plane Till. I used it for a while and it worked great. It still works great, for that matter. After getting a couple more planes (#4 1/2, and #5 1/2) that required modifying where magnets were, and having to leave some home to bring others, etc I decided to make this one.
There will be a blog with more details in the near future.
Edit: blog can be found here: http://lumberjocks.com/Mosquito/blog/34028
I used a 24”x48” piece of Baltic Birch Plywood for the basis of it, and the rest is poplar. There is a 1/4” groove in the front/bottom piece for the toe of the planes to sit in. That brings the total depth for planes to 24.25”, which allows a #8 to fit with out hanging over the end.
I really like it because it allows me to change how I have things laid out. I could, for example, move the ones I use most frequently to be on the left, and have the rest to the right, or have a set of Jointer, Jack, Smoother(s) in one spot, etc. The other thing about it, is that I can make any sort of shelf, holder, or accessory that can use T-bolts and thumb nuts to make whatever I have a need for.
Thanks for checking it out :-)
