I made this till to add some more organization to my shop. I haven’t had any place to put my jointer #7 except on the workbench and I was afraid someday I might knock it off onto the concrete floor of my garage shop. I also recently acquired some Japanese saws and they needed a home too. So designed this till and cut the dovetails w/ the razor dovetail saw. This is my first attempt at using these type of saws for joinery and it won’t be my last as I really like the way they cut w/ a super thin kerf, very fast cutting too. The price isn’t bad either compared to western joinery saws. I used pine for the box and oak for the back of the plane till and luan plywood for the back. I’m not the best at hand cutting dovetails, but I like to practice on shop furniture. Thanks for looking.

I’ve got my planes sitting on the counter as well and have been looking for a better home for them. Thanks for the idea. Great practical project.
