Finally got tired of all the clutter on the wall, and keeping my hand planes in their original card board boxes. Spent the weekend building this cabinet to try and clean things up a little. All material was left over from other projects, so the only thing I had to buy were the piano hinges – my kind of project.
Oak doors, with 3/4” oak box sides & 1/2” oak plywood back.
The case is attached to the wall with a french cleat running the width of the case tied into the outer frame for strength – I didn’t trust the 1/2” plywood for support.
Case is 24” x 32” x 6” deep, and I added 2 1/4” oak strips to the inside of the doors with pockets screws to give me a little more depth.
Hand planes are held in place with rare earth magnets mounted under the toes to give them a little extra support.
Two coats of poly / tung oil blend rubbed on and wiped off for the finish.
Comments / critiques welcome as always.
Thanks for having a look.
