Default Plane profile storage

Having gotten such great ideas to my screw storage question I've got one about how folks store their plane profiles. This probably only applies to those of us that have bought into the planes from Bridge City, but might also include things like the Stanley 45's etc. The profiles and blades from Bridge City come nicely packaged, but the boxes are large and cumbersome. Anyone come up with a great solution yet?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

I just made drawers for the planes and bodies. I used side hardware from Lee-valley.

Veritas® Micro Drawer Slides/Sides - Lee Valley Tools

They work well with a little wax in the saw grooves.

Thanks for the real life Demo... As usual Lee Valley introduces something that I completely missed even with their catalogs and e-mails that they send to me.....
