Here is a few pictures of my hand tool cabinets. Lumber : whatever that I had, black walnut, red oak, beech, cherry plywood, maple, amd baltic birch. I refer to the plane cabinet as my medicine cabinet.Because whenever I get stressed, I just open the doors , play with tools a bit and dust them off and put them back. You should try that, it is very therapeutic!!!!!
Thanks for looking.

Leave it to the jointer to hog a whole shelf! What a wonderful collection of planes & I often remark that they’re cheaper than therapy. Excellent collection.

OK guys; Stop drooling. This is about the cabinets not the planes.

I spend so much time in my work shop when ever I have pain, and people say; ‘but how can he go there when he is sick’. I always explain; ‘to me it’s meditation’. So I follow you.
Just one question; do you work for Anant?

Actually, the real question is what is the empty spot on the top shelf reserved for??

Beautiful cabinet.

Great looking cabinets. I need to build something similar, although my collection of planes is not so large.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice display for the planes. Also very nice collection of planes. Those are very nice.

Looking at the saw till, have you had any issues as a result of storing your saws horizontally like that. I have always preferred to store mine vertically.

Since it is about the cabinets. I like the upright plane holder, especially the two planes, I mean the two spots that hold those two planes. By the way what are them two anyway? I see you like to keep everything in “Plane” sight & you did a very nice job.
