Right now I am using a tilted plane till but need to expand it for a couple new planes.

I saw one guy hanging them by the knobs which looked pretty handy. Blades not touching anything.

Just finished this last weekend. It’s inexpensive and works well, though not as swanky as a full till.

For the first few planes I made individual, customized holders. They are an ideal solution but they take time to make and when I became addicted it just didn’t seem practical to make one for each individual plane. I started hanging them from their knobs as a temporary solution but it has turned in to more of a permanent solution. You can tell it was intended to be temporary from the sloppy knots above the planes. I have wanted to make a full hanging cabinet for all of my hand tools but my collection is pretty fluid. Since I am always buy and selling (mostly buying) I am afraid that I will outgrow a cabinet shortly after it is built. Great topic, I will be following to get ideas.

I live in a high humidity area, everything is behind doors. All duplicate / collectible tools have been sold. The small blue cupboard is for polishing supplies and is vented. The trad timber box on top was used when I worked for bosses, now it contains luthier timber and supplies. My bench gets shifted around a bit but never far from the big blue cupboard.

If I had any I would just put them in a hanger.

Sorry I couldn’t help it.

Some of my users are in this bench with a 60watt light bulb inside behind of the drawers to keep moisture down in the winter.

Believe it or not the Craftsman aluminum plane with the four sided blade is my favorite for leveling down rough stock.

Turtle, can you post a few more pics of the aluminum plane. I’ve never seen one like it.
