    Plane Till?

    So, I'm thinking about making a plane till to hang on the wall to keep my meager little collection of plans handy.

    I'd expect the collection to grow a bit over time, but definitely will not get quite the size of collection as Jim or Ken or Bill.

    How big do you think a plane till should be to hold a decent collection of planes? Enough to do the basic hand plane type tasks...

    Well, lessee... Mine is about four feet square, and holds about sixty planes - about half my collection.

    Seriously, I'd think a rack as high as your longest plane (a #8 is about 24", btw) and long enough to accommodate what you've got now, plus a few more, would likely be enough for now.

    Mine holds the planes at about a 5 angle, and I embedded some half inch Neodymium magnets in the rack under the shorter planes - to ensure they don't fall out.

    Jim, can you post a photo of the thing that holds your planes?
