    I was impressed with the plane, and Steve handles it well. I was equally impressed with the box; he put in time to put that as close to the original as possible as well.

    Steve made my "that won't at all" plane to a "it actually works"; the sweet spot was smaller, and thus harder to hit, than a plane costing 5 to 10 times the price, but I could make it work.

    The drawers are not deep, from 3/4" to 3".
