Well, maybe just North Dakota’s ugliest.
I made something to store my planes in so they are all in one spot. It’s entirely out of scraps of Oak plywood (with the grain running the wrong direction) and scraps of pine from my cutoff pile. I glued in some earth magnets to keep the planes from tipping out, since the angle isn’t very great. It’s 6” deep, and I did this on purpose. I don’t have a whole lot of space, and don’t want the thing jutting out into my workspace. It works very well, and since I didn’t apply any finish, it’s not as noticeable that it’s all scrap and looks like…. well, like it was built in a hurry out of junk ;-)
I also threw in some screws/pegs to hold my saws. If I get more planes, I’ll bump the saws and put the planes in. If you have an uglier plane till, please link – I’d love to see it!!!
For those really observant ones – yes, I do have a few Harbor Freight items in there alongside my nice Veritas planes/saw… let’s just say growing pains. I’m not a hand tools only guy by any means. And I don’t own any Lie Nielsons either. But I’ve been finding how a good smoothing plane can really be useful at times, and same with a good dovetail saw.
