Andy,
do you place a similar nameplate on all your pieces? It's a nice idea.

Andy

ps could you explain/translate your signature. It looks more Welsh than Dutch?

I've probably just been being thick all this time, but I've always wondered how the planes stay in place in these tool cabinets where thay are stored vertically. Am I correct in presuming those little round circles in the pictures are magnets?

Lovely job Andy. I have been inspired to moved my cabinet 100 places up the to-do list

I believe his signature means "none more patriotic than the Welshman that doesn't live in Wales!"
Mind you-my Welsh is a bit rusty! :roll:
Cheers

Sorry Alf, I was trying to draw an analogy between the very patriotic Mr Connery who I believe still lives abroad but vigorously supports the SNP and the quote in Welsh from Andy.

Sorry Andy, I knew what you meant. I was just being facetious :oops:

Cheers, Alf

Thanks every one for your comments.

Pretty good Philly, your Welsh is excellent (I'm a Welshman abroad from Maentwrog near Criccieth originally but brought up nr Mold in Clwyd mainly)

The labels are a recent acquisition , I saw an advertisement in Fine Wood Working mag for http://www.makers-marks.co.uk and they will do even orders of just one label! I ordered 20 which should last me a lifetime. All 3 bookcases, Femke's bed, chair and table, and the TV cabinet now have them on, so 13 yet to be used. 20 cost 70 quid (inc P&P) and the quality is very high I thought.

Yes Alf there are 2 Japanese squares there, one sits fully in the block and one sits proud, one is actually from Tokyo and the other I ordered from Dick in Germany. I use them a lot.

The cabinet was inspired by Chris Becksfoorts one (again via FWW) but I added the tiger sugar maple and ebony details to make it a little nicer.

The doors are veneered in Ripple Sycamore with ebony handles, but does not photograph well as the ripple is hard to see.

Yes the magnets do hold the planes in place, this was a design opportunity as I did not test it before I made the plate! So after my 604 nearly fell out and landed on the concrete (just caught it in time) then followed by much head scratching I used rare earth magnets from Axminster. These are epoxied in but they do come loose fom time to time. And I have one space for a small plane left (Bottom left)- I really fancy the LN squewed block plane but that has a bronze sole and hence would not stick to the magnets :oops: So maybe I'll wait for that fancy Clifton blockplane?
