This is my two day project. I needed some place to put my hand planes. So I came up with this rack. I didn’t glue it, I just screwed it all to gether. I did leave the spacers loose so I could pull them out and not use them if I don’t want too. Made from all kinds of plywood. No finish or sanding. Very slow putting it together do to all the cuts. Anyway maybe it will give some ideas to others. Thanks for looking and leaving comments. Dave

That is an impressive collection you have there.

You could have sent them here for storage. But that looks like a good spot.

I’m not sure I have enough planes to fill the bottom shelf… lol…

That’s nice and well built, I’m sure it helps keep them organized and sharp.

It looks like you could already use another one though… lol

Seems well worth the time to have them all organized, and in one place.

Will Mego, They are not #78s. They are Stanley 190, 191 and 192. I do have 2 # 78s but I ran out of room on this rack. I am going to be making a nother rack for the rest of my planes. Thanks for asking.

I just stumbled across this and had to comment on both the storage and the planes. I’m struggling not to become a plane collector. That’s a great job. I like having spacers that are removable to allow for different sized slots…and I love the planes. -SST
