    This sits one step left of my joinery bench and holds all my planes and chisels. Finished it Monday. Really like it so far. Obviously it is a modification of the chest that C. Schwarz wrote about in PWW. This one has two extra shelves and makes no pretense as to portability.

    Looks great, Ron. Is that the chest that requires battens (spelling?) to keep the front panel in place? I think I remember seeing that in a Schwarz chest. I see the cutouts in the shelves that might allow the battens.

    I could really use something to keep my planes out of dust’s way – they are currently on a shelf under the bench top. But at least they’re easy to get to.

    Nice job of adapting Ron. I’ve seen Schwartz’s explanation of this design before and it has some good points but space always seemed small in his version. I think you took care of that.
