« Part 31: Adjusting the doors and putting on the latches Part 32 of Building a brace till series no next part

Getting a little more progress. I made hangers for my most commonly used hammers on the door of my till.

Left to right, the ball-peen hammer I got from my dad, and which I use for nearly everything; the plane hammer I got from Kenny in the turning swap; the dead-blow I got from Kenny in the turning swap, which is proving very useful (autocorrupt wanted to “fix” that to useless -f’in Apple); and my dice mallet from Earl, which gets used pretty hard, and keeps on whacking.

One very well organized and nicely built till Dave.

Thanks! Getting there. I still need to kit out the inside of the left door, and not sure what else.

Turned out to be a tribute from all the great gifts you received. Looks great Dave.

Thanks, Dave! I still have to upgrade the plane storage one of these days, plus both my file and saw tills are overflowing… always something that needs organizing in the shop.

Well done Dave, that is a good shop cabinet having the most used tools up front and center, ready for action.

I’ll be getting back to organization after finishing a few projects.

Thanks, Eric. Its getting there. But I haven’t been in the shop now for a couple days, other than to drop off a package of sanding discs for my bowl sander and to sweep up. We’ve had a painter painting our fireplace who finished today, and we both had to keep an eye on her so she didn’t do things that weren’t agreed to. I think we’re going to town to buy plants tomorrow, so maybe Friday I’ll get back in the shop…

Hope your organization goes well.
