I do not know why I have waited so long to purchase a Lee Valley spokeshave! What a wonderful tool. It is lightweight, graceful, and very effective. It made really easy work of getting the dividers contoured. I would highly recommend one if you have yet to give them a try!
Life has gotten a bit in the way of woodworking lately. However, one of the few good things about winter is that it does provide for a bit more time in the shop.
I started to plan out and build the "caddy" that will hold my planes. The plan is to make two caddies - one for the larger planes and one for the medium sized planes. I made a "T" of sorts with a bottom piece and a vertical support that will hold the planes at a desirable angle. I then designed some dividers that would support the planes vertically, yet allow for plenty of room to grasp the handles when removing the planes.
Now that the planning phase is over I will need to finish cutting all of the pieces and glue the caddy together. Hopefully, the caddy will provide proper support while allowing as much of the back of the cabinet to show as possible.
