    A Box For My 6" Planner

    I made this little box up for my 6" hand planer.....














    Made out of some 9mm plywood, I used the iBox jig which works so very well!


    I might be sending this to a friend in the US who might use it, I never use it, I bought it for about $30 used. It works great, but I have no real use for it. Still it's nice to have a box to store it in.

    Oh thank God! I wondered what a 6" planner could be.

    I repurposed a box for a Pitney-Bowes postage machine as a case for my Skil belt sander. Fits perfectly, and I didn't have to make it.
    Cheers,

    Cool box Stu i have always thought if i got my hands on one of those by the time i gave up planning there would be no wood left. I guess it would be handy for trimming door edges , saw it used in the video on those lock gates someone posted so i guess more in construction game use.

    These planers are really useful for timber framing, they are too big for much else, it weighs a lot!

    I read where those planners are good for making scarf joints on pieces of plywood when making boats.

    Nice box!
