Here is one for the storage and organisation category as this is where I store my hand planes. Just off my main workshop area is a kind of ante-room which I have turned into a store/display/museum area. It is my favorite space. I keep some antique hand planes here, some from other makers and the planes that I have made myself. It is a dust and damp free zone (I even have tubular heaters to keep the air dry in winter, behind each glass cabinet). When I am finished using a particular hand plane I dust it down and give it a rub of a soft cloth before restoring it to the cabinets. No hand plane spends even one overnight out of the cabinets.
Oh! yes. I love my hand planes.
You can see the individual hand planes in my collection by visiting my blog.
The area is also a working area as I use the bench pictured for cutting dovetails at and doing other hand work.
I always sweep up immediately after a work session.
It is very pleasant to work here surrounded by my beloved hand planes. A little piece of Heaven.
