I made a little progress on the tool chest details. I was able to complete the plane till plate layout. The next step will be to obtain the walnut necessary for the case in which this till will reside. Previous blog posts show the case design. This plate will be mounted almost vertically in the case and be located within arms reach of the bench where planing occurs.
