Made the one for the jointers first a while ago, since I’ve been adding more and more i decided to add one for the smoothers and other misc planes.

Added hangers on the side for squares and various measuring devices.

First time using lock rabbet joints and edge banding. Picked up a quite neat compact iron which works great.

Luckily all the plywood for the small smoother till was free from work. Birch ply. Still have a bunch left for some smaller projects.

Used some neat brackets, that will hold the lid open, so i can grab tools out and don’t have to worry about the lid. The lid is sapele from a past project.

That’s a lot of planes.

Very nice build. Nice organization. Efficiency comes from this.

Thanks all. And Michael, it’s only about 30 or so. Not a lot, yet :)

That will be nice to have. The lid should help keep dust down too.

Your plane display stand TILL looks , very nice.
I don’t have the long term strength/stamina to use handplanes over a given period. However for occasional touching up I do have a few preffering the german Hobel planes wooden type.They look nice too. Alistair

Thanks. I’m probably going to mount some stuff to the lid as well for more storage.

I’ve always avoided a plane till for the dust and weathering reasons, but thanks to the inspiration of your flip top lid….I have no excuse. It is perfect.

Thanks Red. ;). I used lock rabbets instead of mortise and tenons, cause i got so frustrated on the mahogany till. Had no good way of cleaning them up :(. A shoulder and rabbeting block are in my future!
