Very nice, and I like the asymetric drawers. Was there something particular that needed to be stored that drove that configuration?

Hi Chris, originally I designed it for 3 small drawers, but it did not work,I realised it after I assembled it,
so I had to remove one partition, in the small drawers I have my veritas honing guide, and in the large one I have a caliper and some marking knife.

I going to build a larger one, I have more hand plane, I need a place to store all may hand tools ,I am thinking it is going to be 48”x 77” 4 doors and 16 small drawers. the drawer are going to be half blind dovetail for the front and through dovetail for the back

thank you for you coment

It’s a very elegant plane cabinet.
And some wonderful planes.
