« Part 2: French cleat /hammer time. Part 3 of Setting up my shop series Part 4: After a long delay ... some progress »

After reading a lot of different options about how to store your planes (on there sole, on their side, blade in, blade out, etc) here is what I came up with:

Here is the holder, basically two platforms on opposite ends of a cleat, edged with pieces of lattice
Plane Holder

As you can see I sized the platforms to be short of the blade opening. Both platforms are the same size so that I don’t need to place the plane the same direction every time.
