I did not build this rack according to the dimensions given because I wanted something smaller. It is still pretty big, and heavy, to accommodate only several planes. I added a slot on the top "shelf" to store my cabinet scraper and a couple of marking knives. Also, I added a clip to secure my small shoulder plane because I wasn't comfortable that the angle of the tray was enough to keep a light plane from falling forward. Using thinner dimensional lumber at least for the tray and the sides would help reduce the weight and size. Also, 3/4" stock is too big for the tray separators.
I had no significant problems constructing this holder that was customized for my hand plane collection. Although not specified in the plans, I was able to clamp the project into glue-up alignment on a standard woodworking bench using crude wood cauls held in place by bench dogs. However, I was a bit skeptical that glue and brads alone would support the weight of six bench planes, so I used a few #10 wood screws to hold the critical panels together. Also, access to planes is most convenient with the tote end down in the slot, but for shorter planes this means that the rounded tote is supported by the shelf, not the sole of the plane. I worried a bit that this might allow shorter planes to slip out of the slot when jostled, but so far it doesn't seem to be a problem, and one can always place the planes knob-side down if this is a concern. Overall, a nice-looking and effective solution to storage for hand planes.
