Made from dovetailed mahogany sides and 1/2” MDF back, this till has a little something different. When looking at how to attach this to the wall, I didn’t want to have to set it at an angle to keep the planes in. Looking around the shop, I found some 3/4” neodymium wafer magnets. I used my plunge router with a 3/4 bit and bored a 7/16” deep holes for each storage slot in the back side of the MDF and dropped in the magnets, securing them in place with epoxy. The 1/16” gap between them and the planes allows for a lot of hold strength.
To test, I was able to lean the till over to about 10 degrees before my big #7 let go. Having played around with it today, I’m extremely comfortable having my plane set suspended like this. Secured to the wall with an oak french cleat, this feels very sturdy. Enjoy!
