Default Small shop storage for planes and chisels

My shop is a two car garage and storage and accessibility are a constant struggle. There are four of these rolling cabinets that i made drawer/ tool holders for. This is what I came up with for the planes and chisels.
The chisel racks all go into one drawer and can be taken out to use when needed, they used to be piled into one drawer.

Those are just fantastic! I love the plane holders - I'm assuming you have magnetic strips there? Great design and execution. I'm definitely stealing some of those ideas. Thanks so much for sharing!

Poto,
There are Benchcrafted magnetic strips in the drawer holding the block planes, the other is just using angled positioners and gravity. They're not intended to travel far.

Brian, what make are the chisels in the holder second from the right on the bench? They have ferrules and sockets. Nice looking - you've got a great selection.

Photo,Good eye, they are by far my favorite bench chisels. They are hand forged Barr Quarton's bench chisels. They're A2 steel and perfectly balanced, they come with a flat back and hold an edge like nothing else I have. We'll see how the PM-V11's compare.

Thanks, Brian. I'd never heard of Barr Quarton. Looks like he does nice stuff. I wish I could try them out some time. Does he ever go to the WIAs?

I've always said, if you're going to do beautiful work, make sure you have beautiful things around you. Your storage solutions are as pleasant to look at as they are functional. Lovely work.

Regards,

Rob

Thanks Rob, you're right, it's nice to have beautiful things around us while we play (I mean work).

Peter,

Check this out from Dan.

Selecting a new Bench Chisel Set

I came really close to heading that way this last summer while I was roaming around that area. Maybe next year........
