The A1 8 drawer Orchard Metal Plan Chest provides high capacity paper storage for A1 paper.

With 8x 83mm deep drawers running on easy glide nylon skids smooth and quiet action is ensured when sliding the drawers in and out.

Contrasting brilliantly against any paint finish the chrome finish (standard) D handles give the drawers both a modern feel and a reassuringly strong touch point when handling the drawer.

The wooden MFC work top provides a resilient and comfortable surface to work against whilst being easy to replace if required.

Want to choose your colour finish?

The pure white finish on both the frame and the drawers looks sleek, however if you would prefer to add a little colour to your workspace then we go ahead! If you want to order online, simply order your ideal drawer configuration in the standard finish and we will contact you to discuss colour options before putting your plan chest into production.
Check out our Colour Picker to see what colour combinations are possible.

Need extra security?

The drawers can also be fitted with individual locks. Keys can be suited to a single master, or with unique keys for each drawer. Contact us for further information.

Want it mobile?

If you are looking for a plan chest which can be easily moved around your office or studio, then the heavy duty locking castors are the ideal solution.

No. Orchard Metal Plan Chests are supplied fully assembled however, it is easy to dismantle them if required for installation.

Are metal plan chests stronger than wooden?
All our plan chests are built to be 'student proof' and come with a lifetime warranty. However, if maximum robustness is key then a metal plan chest would be most suitable.

Are the drawers removable?
No. You would have to dismantle the plan chest to completely remove the drawers.

I have just received my Big Orchard A2 Priory Counterweight Drawing Board and it is well built and came securely packaged. Thank you to all at Big Orchard for the time and effort you put in to make this purchase such a worthwhile investment

Excellent service and a lovely plan chest. Sadly it had arrived slighty damaged in transit (not Big Orchard's fault), but they went above and beyond to rectify the problem at our convenience. Thoroughly recommended.

I can't say enough about this company, when I first started in the garden design arena, I purchased an a0 parallel motion drawing board which is brilliant. I have spent hours drafting designs on this board and we see me through many more years. Highly recommended.

SUPERB plan chest! From the minute we placed the order to receipt of the beautifully made plan chest, everything went smoothly. It is a beautiful piece of furniture, and will probably become an heirloom! Well done and thank you, The Big Orchard.

I ordered the A2 Priory Drawing Board Cross-wire and love it. Packaged well and works wonderfully. I am not an architect... I use it for water colour painting as it is wipeable and has adjustable angles, so is is far to sophisticated for my needs rin reality. as I don't use the wire part and level/ruler other than it holds my paper/pad in place. Maybe it would make sense to make a simpler one for artists like me!

Bought a 10 drawer plan chest for personal use. The 2 Steves that run the co. could not have been more helpful - & kind. They went way beyond the necessary 😊👍👍👍👍 The product is excellent; exactly what I needed, to resolve ALL my art materials. 🎨🖼
