Well originally I was practicing hand cut dovetails and decided, instead of just practicing on scrap, to make a utilitarian piece. If I was going to make all the cuts, might as well be for something useful. So It started to just be a shelf and then decided I really had been wanting a plane ramp and tool chest. The doors are soon to come, hopefully. There’s a reason I didn’t include any of the pictures of the side of the cabinet, but by the time I was done with the drawers my dovetails had improved. It’s all just birch ply, I edge banded it and put some dark walnut danish oil on it

Thank yal!
At the moment the upper cubbies above the planes store screws and dowel boxes, but the dividers slide out and I hope a scrub plane and rabbet show up soon

I saw the sideways somewhere and I like the idea of the blade not resting on the cabinet. I know my cabinet is out of birch ply, but I’d rather not nick it up with constant use, and this way the blade doesn’t have to touch if you’re careful

The small one is a block plane. It’s a cheap version, on the verge of being trash, but I spent way too long tuning it up.
