Project Information

In making this plane rack (out of sapele), I borrowed most of the moulding planes seen here from a good friend who is also a wooden plane expert to figure out the size of the rack. (I don't think I will have a collection of that many wooden planes at the end of the day.)

The beading tool was Veritas Plow Plane with a beading cutter, which worked like a charm (http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=74143&cat=1,230,41182,43698).

The joinery tool was the Festool Domino Joiner, which is a game-changer for furniture and cabinet making.

Two shop tips to share:

1) To remove the glue squeeze-out, I used a shop-made chisel plane (gleaned from the Fine Woodworking magazine: http://www.finewoodworking.com/2016/11/02/turn-a-block-plane-into-a-chisel-plane)



2) To protect the workbench top, I turned to a retractable blind:



The rack is installed on the wall next to the chisel cabinet, using the French cleat system.

Great work. If you start acquiring more wood planes I'm sure you will need to build a second one. :)
