  Three Planes in the Case 2 of 2  

Next, a stepped wedge block is inserted in the case...

...and slid to the right to fully restrain the two planes.

The last plane to go in is another bullnosed rabbet plane that takes
a cut coarser than the other two planes.

The sliding case lid clears the top of the shoulder plane by about 1/32nd
of an inch. Obviously this takes precise measurement when the components
of the case are laid out and prepared for joining.

The end of the box has a 1918 English penny for an identification icon so
I will know what is in the case when it is stacked with others on a shelf.

This photo shows the completed case containing three planes
ready for placing on a shelf.
