    Spoke Shave Rack

    I have a few shaves around that sure come in handy. They are in the minority and seem to get moved from place to place (and will again) . To protect them as well as keep them handy I took a piece of mahogany scrap 1-5/8" x 1-3/8" by however long it was (finished length is 10-1/2" but extra length makes it easier to work). Drill 7/8" holes on 2" centers down the 1-5/8" face about 1/4" from the "back". Use a miter gauge on the bandsaw to cut slots to the holes at a 30* angle. Rip the piece in two and x-cut to 10-1/2" length. Glue or screw to a board and add a couple 'L' hooks in the back so it can catch some pegboard.

    This spot is under the lumber rack and over a cabinet where I keep my shooting board and some templates. I have other peg board panels that move freely about the shop via the cleat system so I am not sure where it will finally end up. I got off work at 3pm and finished this up just now so it really isn't a time-stealer. In this weather, the shellac dried before I got my gloves off. If it keeps my spoke shaves from getting dinged it'll be worth the effort.

    Thanks Glenn for the inspiration. You always come up with really great ideas. I will steal this one.

    Looks great, Glenn. Nice idea for keeping them out of the way but close at hand.

    Nice, but now you need a more elegant hanging solution for that LV shoulder plane...

    Nice Rack! I mean that in the most professional way too.

    You know you're doing it right when... you need a rack to store all of your spoke shaves. I see you wisely have a couple of open slots

    This started with the idea of formalizing my plane till. I got everything out on the bench to start checking dimensions . . . and then got distracted by the spoke shaves always hanging here or lying there. I am short on wall space and think I will hold off (yet again) on the plane till until I re-org the shop a it more . . . it never really ends, does it?

    Nice work. I have only one spokeshave, unless I can find the other. The one I have is just a humble little deal from Canadian Tire. It would feel outclassed if I made a rack for it.
