As part of my shop plan to get to my new work bench several steps were necessary.
- My Planes have been not had a good home. This has to change. I have slightly damaged one of my brass plane soles and that is just painful.
- To have a home for my planes, I have to re-arrange the tool wall where the chisels live now.
- All of my layout things, rulers, dividers, marking knives, marking guages, saddle squares and just lots of pencils, pens and erasers are a mess.
So the plan started with moving a group of tools onto some new shelves. That is finished.
Next is a set of drawers for chisels and making tools.
Then a new plane and saw till on the tool wall.
So here we are at the Chisel Chest
This will be a multi day post with lots of pictures and comments documenting the build process.
My design process always starts in my head. I then back up the process with hardware and wood selections. I always like to have all pieces and parts on hand when I start. So a Plan.
First step was the drawer boxes. These are 3/4″ plywood, pocket hole joinery and 1/4″ plywood bottoms dado’d.
