Not only am I in need of a saw bench, but a place to store my hand saws. Right now I keep them in an old toolbox, that is often difficult to get at. I planned the length of this to accommodate a saw till of some sort.
The plan is for a simple box suspended in the non vice side to keep my saws in a handy place near where they will be used most.
I ended the last entry and start this one with cutting the stock to length.
and starting the layout
The saws will be held in theses cradles. The cradles will be held in the box frame with wedged tenons.
The raised portion on the cradle on top is intentional, I plan on making a small box in the saw till to accommodate spacers and wedges for the vice when not in use.
Layout complete. The ends of the box frame will be dovetailed.
I started chopping out mortise holes this morning.
Obviously these need to be cleaned up but I had to get work.
More on this later as chopping and fitting progresses.
