Plane Storage on slanting board
I got to thinking about my planes scattered all over the shop… on shelves, in drawers, & here & there.
I could consolidate their storage, get them all together, and make more overall storage space for other things!
So, I grabbed some scraps and started out Mapping Out where the various planes would fit on the board.
I screwed 1/4” ply 1/2” strips for separators, drew more lines, added more strips, etc. until done.
I marked where little rare-earth magnets would go… drilled partial holes… and glued (J B Weld) the magnets into place.
Mounted the Door Hinges to the top… ... tilted it until it looked good, to keep planes on it good.
Installed bottom Stop to keep it at the desired tilt.
Used a French Cleat on the end of steel Shelving to hang the unit!
Works really good! It\’s nice to see them all in one place now!
Now, I have to clean them up so they look nicer than they are… I have most of the blades, etc. Sharpened & tuned.
I had this done several months ago… Finally getting around to posting it!
