The second phase of my shop remodel project is to build two cabinets above the bench with shelves between them. I desperately need a plane till because my shop also houses a huge boiler that could spring a hot water/steam leak. Last time that happened I spent one month fighting rust. NOT FUN The till could be one of the cabinets or it could be betwee. the cabinets. Here are the planes:

Wow…..some sweet looking planes there. I’d make a cabinet to put them in along with something to fight the moisture. Like some silica to absorb any moisture and to prevent rust.

First thing I’d do is checkout a local remodeling contractor for some replaced windows. Then incorporate the glass into a couple of doors for a nice cabinet. Visibility and protection all in one.

That’s a nice set of planes!
As a plane collector, I have been considering this project also, the problem I have is I trade them constantly, I sale some, I buy more… I need something flexible in that way. One important factor to me is the visual pleasure my tools bring me, so I have been considering to place them vertically -70 degrees- for the visual impact….... in your case, some doors would help to keep the tools against humidity.
