A coupla years ago we were going to move so my wife packed up and boxed up most everything and we sold some display cabinets. Put the boxes into a storage place and then we decided not to move. I built a shed for the boxes since the storage place kept raising the rent. All of my planes were boxed up all this time and buried deep in the shed behing all the Christmas stuff. Now that I got all the Christmas stuff out I could get to the boxes that had the planes in them. So before I have to put all the Christmas stuff back I made a till to hold my favorite ones that I can use now and then. Used wood that I had around, screws that I had bought at Mcfeelys and used a french clete to attach the till to the studs. Now I can make those beautiful little curly things any time I want.

Nicely done. I’m looking for ideas on how to store & hand the planes on the wall method we’re putting up. Thanks for sharing. Nice workshop.

Nicely done and a good example for me to follow. I am going to use this to store my few planes. Those curly little things are great aren’t they?
