Angled Plane Till

I like to keep my hand planes “handy” so this plane till does this. The slight slant back keeps the planes from falling but also allows me to have a paper towel roll underneath for the inevitable glue spills and paint spatters. When I got the #7 plane it was a bit of an afterthought so I tacked it on the right side of the till. I have seen a lot of plane organizers that involve magnets and strings and such but this works well for me.

Nicely done, and a great way to store the planes. Having a felt liner on the bottom is a wonderful idea.

I like the till. But more genius is in using it as a paper towel guard. My roll is always covered in saw dust, so yours is great.

If I saw a magazine with this pic as the cover, I’d buy it just because it feels like a warm place, and a serious reminder of why you’re there.

I added red felt as my wife didn’t like green. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

That sets it off really nice.

And as a added bonus, it hides the blood.

Unfortunately it only hides the blood until it is too set to clean up in its dry brown stage…

And usually there is no blood unless I am using my type 6 or an ohio with non-reversed threads that like to bite me when I feel underneath to make sure I retracted the edge all the way and instead I jutted it out there even more ... again.

OK, saying usually is is probably over-optimistic.
