Side 1 of the Plane Till has been very satisfying. First side 1 will house many of my most used planes include jointers, smoothing, block and miter. Second though, these are all simply shaped planes so they are easy to make tight fitting homes for.
I have created all the dados which have fairly snug fits. I have cut the actual dividers and flattened the top (after rounding over the tops and not liking that). I cut in dado grooves for the dividers in their mated pairs. Now it's time for a dry fit.
Once I was happy with the fit of each component, it was time to glue it up. I needed to get the clamps in position and have a nice strategy for glueing up the dividers.
Next I used a block plane and some sand paper to smooth out any irregularities in the tops of the dividers. I still want to take some sand paper and ease the edges.
My last steps on side 1 will be to add magnets to ensure the planes stay in their homes even when the plane till is near vertical. I'm happy with the result. Now it's on to the more challenging side 2 of the plane till cabinet build.
