    Show me your wall mounted Hand tool cabinet

    Title says it all. I am sick of the mess on my joiners bench and I need better (more) storage for hand planes, chisels, marking gages, saws, etc. All the usual neander tools. So show me what you built because I want to beg/borrow/steal your good ideas. This just moved to the top of my list!

    FWIW, I am looking for utility, not looks. I have a bunch of 1" oak given to me that I plan on using. Much is not furniture quality so I will probably use that for the cabinet. I might make a fancy door for it to dress it up some? Just depends, but utility is what I am looking for over everything else.
    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.

    I pondered over making a plane and saw till for so long, I reached the point you are at right now. I did this "temporarily" and it stuck. Probably not recommended for locals with . . . weather

    Wish I could help Jeff, but I too, am looking forward to seeing what others have come up with.

    Looks like Bob got into the egg-nog a little early this year

    Funny you should mention it . . . its hard to see in the pics but there are short 1/4" dowels placed so that if they were to sway, they hit the dowel and not each other. Funny, but true .

    Got to be a member to see it Bart. I would sign up for the trial but then you start getting their junk mail.

    I posted over on woodnet and got some good ideas. One of the least attractive really appeals to me.

    I like the plane storage. I was thinking standing on end but this has advantages. Easy to rearrange and get too. I think it uses the space better too.
