This is based on the storage rack from Wood magazine. I did make a couple of changes, I added two drawers for some additional. I also added some rare earth magnets under the planes. I found the recline in the plans were not steep enough.

That’s a nice looking plane till. I notice you have only four empty spaces. You have just guaranteed that you will find five planes at rock-bottom price at the next auction/fleamarket/garage sale you go to.

Nice shelf! I hadn’t read your comment yet but the first thing I thought of when I saw the pic was I bet a magnet would work wonders on something like that. I’ve seen the plans for those type of shelves and don’t like how far out they have to come so the planes don’t tilt off. So does the magnet trick work well? Do the planes just pop right off or do you have to give them a little pull?

Nice job. I want to build something like this myself. I currently use a large pull-out drawer in a tool chest, but the incline would save a lot of valuable horizontal space.

Nice looking shelf. I’m going to have to build something to house my planes soon. It seems they start to multiply after you start using the first couple you get.

Are those the spokeshaves from lee valley in the lower right? How do you like them?
