    Show Me Your Hand Tool Storage!!!

    This should be a good one.

    Nothing makes a room look more like a woodworking shop than to have a wall full of chisels, planes, saws & scrapers.

    Do you keep yours in a cabinet or attached to pegboard?

    In a drawer under your bench or nailed to the wall?

    How do you store your hand tools? I wanna see pics!!!

    If you already have a thread dedicated to yours, please post a link!

    I am of the why put lots of money and work into a work bench crowd. So it's nothing fancy but it works.

    The Obligatory 'My Bench' page Every woodworkers site is supposed to have a My Bench page and that is where I store my tools. I have never built the bottom drawer for it cause I ran out of wood. One of these days I will do that and I plan on adding a couple of sliding shelves inside the drawer. I have a neat idea, just having more fun making real furniture than building shop furniture. So it's low on the list.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    My hand tools are in the drawers of my work bench, very uninteresting.

    Admit it, Jim, you dusted that collection before snapping the photo.

    It's far too pretty.

    That deserves one big You Suck statement. Of course I only mean that jokingly. Nice storage system and collection of hand tools I might add. Here is my low cost, but organizational system for my most often used hand tools.

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    I drool every time I see Jim D's hand tool cabinet

    I really don't have a dedicated space, hand tool cabinet.

    I have a couple of upper kitchen cabs I made [wrong size] that I hung up for my user type 13 planes.

    I have planes stored on shelving, and in the shop restroom

    I have an old spool cabinet I keep my collection of Buck socket chisels in, some refurbished with walnut handles, and some ready to restore.

    I have chisels on my main storage cabinet top .Stanleys, my main beaters.

    I have a set of new/old stock Buck crank neck chisels that have not found a parking space yet.
    And lastly, my mechanical hand tools I've had forever. [My wife calls this red box---our Gold mine ]
    This set stays in my automotive shop section, which is still a disaster zone. I used this space to store shop machinery and supplies when my shop roof fell in. I peek in there every once in a while, but haven't spent much time cleaning it up, organizing, so I can get our crown vic back inside.

    I have several hand planes & then I have a special few that help me keep time & are also users.

    My next project will be the tool case for underneath my bench.
