Shelf for Wooden Planes and Miscellaneous Stuff

Two racks into organizing my workshop and I still seem to be drowning in tools, so I thought I'd put up one of the shelves that I'd planned to put above the tool racks on two of the walls. Basically I just screwed a 44mm square batten to the walls and screwed the shelf to the underside of the batten. The shelf is 400mm deep and in two halves, so I supported the front of the shelf near the join with two pieces of 44mm square batten screwed into the roof and joined to the shelf with halving joints straight off the saw, no glue or screws. The shelf will be painted when I have time to do it and there will be a piece of oak stretching across the two vertical struts so I can mount the shop bell that I ring every time I complete a project, so look out for that in a future tool rack project.

I also made a couple of oak shelves and fitted them to the front of my chisel rack to hold my winding sticks. These shelves have a 2mm well that the winding sticks sit in to keep them in place.

This has gotten a few more tools out of my way, but I still have loads more to deal with so time to start another wall rack, which I think will be for my backsaws and screwdrivers if I can fit them all in.

Thanks for looking.

Great way to organize and clear space. 

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Some excellent storage for a fine collection of hand tools.

It works, and works well. Nice.
