And these are the ones I initially was gonna use, then I realized that these are too short for my planned 7 in height, these are only 6-1/2 meant for 6 in height cubicles.
So before I made new ones, I decided I should review why I spec a 7 in height.
Lets see how the planes, I intent to store, fit in the bottom till of my large till, since it is 7 in high
Record No 078, with fence
Stanley No 45, with fence
Veritas Small Plow, with fence
Wooden plow, the biggest of the two I own. Iron removed.
The irons are higher than the plane wedge.
Veritas large Router
Sargent No 61 Router
It sure look like only the large wooden plow require the 7 in clearance, all the others would be fine at 6 in. but would the large plow one fit?
Only one way to know for sure...the top part of my big till is 6 in high.
Tight fit standing up straight without iron. If I leave it tilted it will fit.
As for my planned 10 in with, it fit within 3 cubicles (12 in) with some spare room.
Again tilted it will fit...better
So for sake of efficiency, I will sized both till's row at 6 in high. They all fit within the planned room 10 in and 5 in wide, spacer grooves every 5 in would keep my options to customize the spaces as I required for whatever plane with a fence attached.
Well, I'm glad I checked before committing to wood :-)
My build dimensions are then:
THICKNESS 3/4 in stock
WIDE (Spaces) 35 + (Dividers) 1 + (Sides) 1-1/2 = 37-1/2 in
HEIGHT (Spaces) 12 + (Divider) 3/4 + (Sides) 1-1/2 = 14-1/4 in
DEPTH 10 in
And just as a reminder to myself
- Carcass dovetailed
- Back panel fit inside rabbet 1/4 in deep, on each sides.
- Middle spacer fit inside 1/4 in deep grooves. Length 36-1/2 in.
Dadoes on both sides every 5 in (use 1/4 spacer on each ends for dado start)
- Top part dado every 5 in (inside only) match middle dadoes
- Bottom part dado every 5 in (inside only) match middle dadoes.
Armed with these notes, tomorrow I'll start machining my pieces.
