Planes, Not Planes

Since he retired almost 12 years ago, hubby has collected wood-working planes, usually Stanley's (American-made!), and the older the better.

Some, like the rare Stanley #1 I bought him last year, are kept all neat and tidy in his den. But others that he intends to use in his woodworking projects - like his 4th Stanley #4 - were piled on a shelf in the garage.

So this week he took down some shelves, cleaned off a section of wall,

and started building a home for his treasures,

complete with moveable shelves

and their own lighting system.

Now he can find what he wants, when he wants it. (In theory.)

And as a bonus - it looks great too. Not bad for a week's work.
