Topic tags/keywords: hand plane storage portable

Hi all!

I’m honestly not sure when’re this topic should go so if it needs moved, mods feel free! I’m needing some ideas on small hand plane storage solution that I can use to cart my planes back and forth from one shop to a room in my house. I’m starting to get evil glares from the SO when I leave a plane in the kitchen counter. Currently I have a wood driver #4 smoother, low angle block plane, a Stanley 78 rabbet, and a Stanley 45. What do you all use if you don’t have permanent storage for these things??

I don’t have a photo handy, but that tray i have to cover my stove would work just fine for this. Handle on each end, raised areas around the rest of the sides.

Something like this? then carry to wherever….

That or maybe you can build something like this….

This was just for bench planes and a couple block planes, but the idea would be the same

Your standard vintage carpenter’s tote could be made to work, especially if you custom make the dividers for your plane.
