When I built my tool chest ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/46739 ), a wise friend of mine, Bob, warned me that the chest would be outgrown one day. He was, of course, right and that day came much sooner than I expected (if you want to avoid my “mistake”, don’t go down the hand tool slope!).
So, I had to build a rack to store my planes that wouldn’t fit into the wall-mounted tool chest: joinery planes (plow and skew rabbet), moulding planes, router planes, AND a wooden plane that Bob gave me as a gift (he was partly to blame for the need for a new plane rack :-) ).
Finish: BLO and paste wax
The last second pic shows the spot before it was taken up by the plane rack.
My go to planes are the LAJ and the LA smooth; the LAJ is in the tool chest and the LAS is placed on the top of the rack for quick access. There is a still a spot above the plow for a small tool, probably the small router plane or the LA spokeshave.
This new rack should solve my storage problem for a little while, I hope.
