I recently purchased a LN jack plane. The shop I work out of is a shared shop for a construction company. We are a custom remodel company that has introduced, custom cabinetry, woodworking and furniture making to it’s arsenal. The shop space is shared between everyone and most employees are not of the woodworking mindset. Knowing that not everyone appreciates the tools I bring in for woodworking I wanted to find a way to protect it while trying out some new techniques. Also, I want a spot that protects it from myself when involved with the more hectic assemblies at which time the shop implodes. I thought that I would make a box that stands out from other the other tool boxes. I used some scrap Wenge and cherry and a good chunk of my weekend to come up with this.

Some of us love wood working and others just need to work so the tools are usually treated with the same attitude.
So that’s one nice box to protect your tool so it can last a life time.

I like it ! That’s a great way to display your Plane. I’m going to save it for later reference. I want to get a couple of really old tools when I’m in Germany next year. Your display case will fit my idea for showing them off in my shop. Thank You.

It’s a shame to hide that plane out of site. It’s like a piece of art.
