This is two simple little shop storage items. The first one is a cabinet to store my planes in. This actually was a little cabinet that my father in law was going to throw away when he was moving recently. I modified the cabinet slightly so I could mount it one the wall and I am using it as a way to store my hand planes. However, My plane collection is rapidly outgrowing this little cabinet so I may have to come up with something else before too long. The second picture is a rack that I made from some scraps of oak that I had to hold these antique chisels that I found in a flee market and brought them back to life. I had always wanted to have a skewed blade bench chisel. I just could never bring myself to pay for a nice new one. Anway, I got these chisels for about $4 each so I took two of them and ground them at a skewed angle and they come in very handy for cleaning out in a tight space.

Thanks,

Doc

I’ve been saving up projects so I could set that record. Actually, these really are projects that I have done over the past month or two that I just haven’t gotten around to posting.

Doc, all that looks great and I like those chisels. When you get ready to add more plane storage think about making some cabinets with drawers. You can get 24 in drawer slides and you can store a lot of planes in a neat and orderly way in a drawer unit. Also it helps keep the air and dust away and you can also put some silica gel in each drawer to protect them from moisture.
