Recently I received the entire gang box and hand tools that belonged to my uncle whom I barely remember. He was a carpenter and worked during the great depression as a CCC camp carpenter working and teaching young men the carpentry skills needed to perform their work. He repaired shoes and worked in the field judging from the tools he had. I am making a wall display with most of the tools and plan to use them occasionally.
I particularly want to learn to tune, sharpen and use the hand planes. I need to get them off the floor and stored. I have six at present and am thinking of some sort of wall rack that will stand them on end at an angle.
Is there a correct way to store or shelve hand planes? Can improper storage damage them? I would really like to hear your suggestions and recommendations.
