Needed some quick vertical storage for some of my molding planes, and whipped this up out of scrap birch and oak 3/4 ply, a beech offcut, and some poplar (for the cleat). This holds just over 15 planes and can stay on the wall for small tasks or get moved to the work for more involved projects.
I will probably move to the more common ‘shallow shelf’ solution, once space for my new bench has been cleared (and the precious wallspace behind it). But for now, it gets them up and easily moved around the shop, and can quickly go outside with the Jawhorse when the weather turns nice.
I plan to paint this to make it blend with the wall, an idea stolen from Phil Bumbalough shop at his BenchMark site. I actually plan to us alot of his storage ideas, although I believe my entire shop could fit in the shade of his saws sliding table. Even more reason to use every nook of space.
Anyhow, hope you enjoyed – Enjoy the rest of your Weekend.
