Hand Saw Till and Plane Storage
Posted 24 February 2011 - 02:12 PM
The shelves have been made out of old table center sections. The bottom shelf has a great crackle-ice finish. All of the edges were hand planed using some of the vintage planes on the bottom shelf. Still room for expansion but the over all size was determined by the size of the reclaimed lumber stock and the length of the current saws to be stored.
All mortise-finger joints were hand-cut and made proud of the surface in the Greene & Greene style. The case is extremely strong and square without the use of any metal fasteners. The shelves use pocket screws to attach to the front and rear rails because nobody wants to see plywood edges. This is my first attempt at a project like this and I am very happy about how it turned out. It is attached to the wall using a Freedom cleat system, basiclly the American version of the shop wall hanging system that Marc uses.

Okay, that's funny.
Great looking cabinet as well.

French or Freedom - that's a hell of a cleat you used - just how much do your tools weigh? I think the wall will fail first...
