    Andrew, tools that are used a lot, but not constantly, are in a cabinet (tools used constantly are on the wall behind my bench). This cabinet has glass doors, so I can see what is there. Less used tools are in cabinets with solid doors.







    Bottom centre ...

    The added benefit is I get to enjoy doing and looking at it also.
    Your router box is beautiful and an inspiration.

    Right now, I keep my LV router plane in a drawer and the extra blades in a roll that LV sells just for those blades.

    If I make a box, I have to find a place to store the box - storage space is always a problem for me.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    I think that I have a place for a box. I might have room in my "plane drawer". I was not aware of the cutter roll, or I would have ordered it when I ordered the plane (probably). If i have the roll, the box is a bit less important because then I might have room in my drawer with the rest of my hand planes.

    If you used the search function on the Sawmill Creek page the Google search will be > router plane storage box site:www.sawmillcreek.org

    Cut out the www. to leave > router plane storage box site:sawmillcreek.org < and the results are always much better.

    I use the little plastic boxes supplied by Veritas to hold their router blades for shipping. The works are stored in a Cortec VCI bag.

    Rust is a problem in my dank basement shop.

    Any pointers to a build thread or pictures of how you store your router plane? I know that Steve has a detailed build for his. In my mind, Derek had something as well, I should go look for that.

    I might as well have way to store all the bits in one container.

    My search karma is poor today, I could only find this:

    Andrew -

    Your search Karma may be bad.... but your posting Karma is good......!

    Contact me at rlee@leevalley.com and I'll send you a pre-production version of our new router box in exchange for your private opinions.

    Cheers -

    (and no - not as nice as Tony or Derek's !)

    The wood whisperer just posted a video on a nice holder. I like how he stores the extra blades. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OuM3g4hIn8

    In my shop, that Wood Whisperer holder would have to be positioned above a nice soft landing spot for the fence and the irons. If there's one thing at which I excel in this hobby, it's the ability to knock things over, off, and all around the workshop.

    in a box together with other small planes that are not used as often as the bench planes - kiwa kanna, a jap. scraper plane, some wooden block planes. The cutters are in a drawer reserved for router cutters, plough plane irons and similar small items that must not get lost.
