I haven't quite figured out how to store all this stuff yet, but here's some shots of the inside of my shop that'll give you an idea what I'm up to.
This is the left-most corner of my useable shop space.
As you can see I'm not particularly organized. There's a Joe Duclos holdfast hanging up at the top (no bench to whack it into yet), 2 10-inch braces and an 8-inch (my 14-inch was in use). A pretty random assortment of auger bits. A couple of try squares, and a modern mortise gauge. There's a couple of steel spoke shaves, and a block plane on the shelf. There's a mess of junk on the table. You might be able to make out my routah (#71), rabbet plane (#78), a Disston saw vise, the little in-line vise. The rubbermaid container holds my combination water stone.
Here's the middle of the wall.
Here you can see my puny collection of saws. There's a Shurley rip on the left, and a Disston cross-cut on the right. The gents saw in the middle is a new cheap one from Lee Valley. The backsaw is a Disston #4 dovetail saw. Below the saws you can see the ubiquitous set of Marples chisels (and one everlast - 1/8"). There's an angle guage to the right of the chisels and a bevel gauge below them. On the high shelf to the right, you can just make out a froe that's waiting for a handle. Down below that is my jack plane. On the table at the left is my sole smoother, a #4.
Farther to the right, you can see my pipe clamps, a long
straight edge, my shop journal, and my battery-powered
radio. That's about it. Except for some smaller stuff in a
couple of tool boxes, mostly machinist tools and random
stuff that I inherited from an old neighbor.
