well done … good choice of materials. Will it hang on a wall or is it on wheels ?

Nice organized storage. Looks like your loaded for bear. Lot of nice Veritas and perhaps L.S. Starett tools there. And I nearly missed the sweet little LN up on the top left. How about a close-up at the lower right plane zone?

hi all ,

first off , thanks alot for all the nice comments :)

dan, the cabinet is wall hung , on a 2×4 cleat or two . i was worried about the weight so it is lagged into the cleats and the wall studs with 4 inch lag screws and a few 4 inch deck screws for good measure .

douglas , the lower right side is most of my bailey plane collection. they are as follows : #2, two #3’s , a #4 , a 5 1/4, a#5 , a#6 , a#7 , and theres a recently aquired #8 not in the cabinet because it doesn’t fit :(

on the top left all by itself is a lie neilsen #1 . there is also a #2 and a shoulder plane in there. oops almost forgot , theres also a #70 box scraper plane :)
