Update to my cabinet maker’s tool chest. I decided that I needed more drawer space and I had left-over cherry so I designed and built this 3 drawer stand to go with it.

Wow, that is fantastic. Are the drawers on the bottom large enough for bench planes? Is the intention that this unit holds all of your handtools?

It is fantastic. You should be very proud.

I built this to hold all of my best hand tools, digital tools, calipers, etc. There is plenty of room in the bottom drawers for hand planes. In fact I purposely used full-extension drawer slides in the bottom three drawers for added weight. Thanks again for all of the comments.
