Avoid the green felt you can see there btw, that was a bad mistake, it soaks in any moisture in the air and holds it against any metal you rest on it. I wound up with more rust on my tools after a week resting on that stuff than they had when I got them, and some of them were older than I was.

Working through the same issue myself at the moment. I'm basically finished assembling the set of planes/spokeshaves etc that I want. At least for now.

Here's what I have to store, except for the transitionals which are a novelty, but won't be kept in the long term:



So I grabbed a few boards and scraps and some clamps just to assemble a rough mockup of a layout, so see what would make sense. All propped on the kitchen countertop so I could drink a lot of tea and do a bit of thinking.



Some descriptions might be helpful. Sorry about the wall of text that follows if it's not 'your thing' fellas.

This is a long enough list, but that's a 3, a pair of 4's, 4 1/2, 5, 5 1/2, 6, 7, 62/LAJ bench planes, 10 and 10 1/2 bench rebate planes, 78 fillister and 79 side rebate planes, 101, 103, 60 1/2, 9 1/2 block planes, Large & Small router planes, Combo and Small Plough planes, small/medium/large shoulder planes, bullnose plane and a 80 cabinet scraper all fitting comfortably inside a 90cm x 90cm internal dimensioned 'carcass', at 30cm depth including an allowance for an 18mm rear panel.

The space below the Combo plane will accommodate the full set of cutters for that. I'll divide the bottom with 3 drawers to take spare blades in one, spokeshaves in another and various spare parts for the planes in the last one. There's some space there if I want it beside the 78, maybe to add a block of scraper cards or whatever, although I'll most likely mount those on a rail packed with magnets for convenience on the inside face of one of the doors.

The vertical planes will sit into divided locations on a till board, pitched at 70 degrees, with the bottoms just resting on a cambered rail. The longer planes all have plenty of mass that at 20 degrees off vertical, they need to be acted upon to move off the board. A bump or vibration won't move them.

Above the vertical planes, there's space for a horizontal shelf, centred and not full width. I won't do anything with it now, but sometime in the future I'd plan to add a Veritas shooting plane, which can be stored there.

Where the router planes and the 7 are now will be inside that carcass dimension I gave earlier. Resting on its side it will easily leave space for some more frequently used small planes to be stowed.

I'll put dividers between the planes in the lower section, with a radiused clearance to make it really easy to pick one and take it out.

Making this for nephews, Is it made out of tongue and groove timber lats? Would It be best to make it out of veneered mdf or panel glued timber?

Finally finished the table. Hard going moving the slabs around, around 80kg a piece. Happy enough but plenty of mistakes.

Just finished this a little while ago, bit of an experiment and certainly not a great outcome but at least I did something bigger for once.
