Plane Wall Storage

I gradually got equipped with line of hand planes. One by one they were tossed in one place or another. I tired to look for right one, and think where I should put it back. I had to do something. Frequently checking projects here on LJ I got inspired and decided to build one. Sure, I can not say I had original plan, but I did not make exact copy of some design. As frequently happen with me I see one or another implementation and as time goes I got different ideas accumulated in my head. Once I decided to build one plane storage, the plan “automagicaly” was sitting in my brains. I do not think I am unique.
Made of scrap 3/4” plywood and 1/4” MDF.

That is a very nice range of planes you have collected there. Which do you use more often now, hand tools or power tools?

And, what is the next tool on your list of things to buy?

Nice all the way around. I’m trying to force my self to use planes more while doing woodworking. I just bought me 3rd one. Looking good.

I use both, power and hand tools. I have table saw, drill press and use them all the time. I do not have power joiner, planner, mortising … so time comes to my hand tools. I do not consider me power tool and hand tool guy, I use both, what ever gives me more enjoyment in woodworking or quicker results. BTW, it is not rare when I get things done using hand tools. Frequently the operation itself takes seconds with power tools but preparation is order or two magnitude more.

thanks for good words, always encourage to do more and more important better quality ;-)

While using that storage rack, I figured that it require little more work. I need to put separators/microwalls/stripes between the planes. If one plane is taken out, top of another neighbor plane can slide on a side and disengage from top holder and fall out as a result. Do not ask how I know ;-)

Hi Yuri,
Looking really good!
Nice collection, and wonderful to get them up on the wall, to protect and to be ready for hand.
I made some plane cabinets, quite simple and did put spacers.
Best thoughts,

you did it right first time, I did not. Though I hint a little bit and say, oh, it is just not finished yet, I just need to put last touch, spacers ;-) And your cabinet is great, better then mine ad looks like transportable.

go ahead and build one. You will find that you use them even more frequently because now they are within easy reach.
