Default Re: Tool Cabinet...

So I had all these little chunks of cherry. I played around with all kinds of ways to display the planes. I finally decided on simple shelves with a back board to screw to the cabinet. Some little interesting detail was needed. After drawing out a bunch of ideas I ended up with this one. I basically took cues from the curves of the bench planes. The cutout on the top I got from the arch on the rabbeting plane and the scraper plane... I just flipped it. Here's my MDF template...



First I had to resaw the backs to 1/2"...


The shelf itself is 3/4". I put a cove on it to thin out the bulkiness. Here is the first one oiled up for effect...
