Nothing fancy – just shop furniture – but I thought someone might find the idea useful to modify for their own needs.
Since I don’t have the greatest dust collection setup in the world, everything in my shop tends to get funky pretty quickly. I built this out of scraps I had laying around (and a purchased piece of plexiglass) to keep my collection of hand plane restorations nice and clean. The slanted piece of plywood the planes are resting on is hinged at the top, and can be lifted to reveal a storage area for spare parts, blades, etc. (see finger hole in last photo).
The first four planes from the left are a #7, #6, #5, and #4, all dating from the 20’s to the 40’s. In theory, the next two spaces will one day be occupied by the elusive and expensive #2 and #1. Currently they are home to an old block plane, and a 1950’s era Craftsman my dad gave me from his shop.
