I actually have some leftover pieces of cork flooring in the drawer where my planes go. My wife gave me her grandpa’s old dresser for the shop so planes go in a drawer. If I set them on their sole, they’re safer than if I set them on their side where one plane could knock into another one and bork the iron. I don’t have a lot of planes. Just 4 or 5, so they all fit in the drawer just fine and dandy.

If I have them out and using them, they’re on the bench which has a wood top and I just set ‘em down however is convenient. That’s usually on their sole.
