So I’ve got a couple of hand planes I need to store

I’ve gathered these over the last decade, from garage and estate sales. Rarely paid more than $5-10 for them. Except the 45’s that were $35, one of them even had all the blades.

I started with the router plane. and the Stanley 78’s. For the router plane just drilled some holes in a board, added some dowels. The holes in the top hold the extra blades.

Here they are hung up on the wall. Just cut out some 2×4 in the shape of the handles for the rabbit planes.

For the rest, I searched around for a till I liked and came accross I liked the hing so I made my own. Mine isn’t near so nice. But all I had was some construction pine ply, and mdf.

I think it’s a good use of space, and I can even hang a few thinks on the sides. Like my scraper planes

I really like how it looks, and will be looking for some better boards to make a nicer one in the future.
