Saw Till #1: Saw Till for My Pegboard Wall

08-18-2016 08:31 PM by HappyHowie | 5 comments »

With a reader’s tip for a Woodsmith magazine issue, I made myself a simple saw till. I mounted the till on my pegboard wall. This way my hand saws, including my Wood River dovetail and cross-cut hand saws, have easy access in my woodshop. I noticed I could also place here several of my combination squares.

New Shop in the Raw #9: Hand Tool Storage/Sharpening Station

03-06-2016 10:02 PM by builtinbkyn | 23 comments »

With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...

Shop Remodel #30: Going live!

01-05-2016 05:17 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Hey all, hope you guys had a nice break. I finally finished the saw till and I am making some good progress on the tool cabinet. I was hoping to be starting on the workbench by now, but I should be able to get at it tomorrow. Better late than never.The carving of the till took a lot longer than I thought it would. I wanted the art nouveau whips to be really pronounced and it took a lot of work, but I am happy with the results. I finally got around to scanning in the...

Shop Remodel #29: Blame it on Star Wars

01-01-2016 02:27 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Hello all, I haven’t been keeping up with this blog very well this week. It is because I haven’t had a lot to report. I have been trying to finish up the carving on the till, but it has been slow going. I might have to pull out some power carving goodies to get on top of it. I was hoping to get started on the bench this week and I may well get out the maple tomorrow to see if I have enough, I’m little skeptical about it. I might have to alter the design to accommodate it. On...

Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

Shop Remodel #7: Speed Kills

11-30-2015 01:16 AM by bearkatwood | 3 comments »

The case for the saw till has been made and the first coat of finish applied. The face frame is gluing up and I am going to have some fun with it. I used loose tenons to put it together, just being lazy I guess. I like to run a small groove down each side for glue to escape. I will get all “artsy fartsy” with it and make it in the style of the larger cabinet. It looks good so far. I cut up the sides for the tool cabinet and have them just ab...

How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

06-02-2014 07:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at In my above video I show the woodworking “hand tool storage board” & shelf that I just designed and built to store & display some of my most used hand tools, including my chisels, marking gauges, back saws, try squares, dividers, and molding planes. In addition to using scrap to build this simple storage board (which hangs on wall studs) I built a shelf for my molding planes using simple 2×10 pine boards. The mo...

Dutch Tool Chest #5: The Larger Saws

04-15-2013 02:03 PM by Brandon | 18 comments »

My goal on the Dutch tool chest was to incorporate a space for two larger saws in the design. Like Chris Schwarz’s Dutch tool chests, I was determined to locate the saws on the lid, yet what I didn’t like about his design was that it required ample space on both sides of the tool chest to pull the saws out. I usually don’t have much space on either side. Here’s his design (and notice that you can’t pull that bottom saw out without running it into that workbench o...

Saw till

12-15-2012 09:00 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

I decided to burn through some more of my scrap wood, this time stuff left over from when I built the miter saw/router table station. There was some pretty good sized 1/2” plywood left over cut at odd angles (which was itself scrap from our shelving project). I have been mulling over what to do with this odd sized (about 2’ x 4’) wood and finally hit on an idea: a saw till. For a while now, my master plan has been to get the tools that I use regularly (that is, the h...

Tool Chest #8: Tills and Tool Storage

08-15-2012 04:01 AM by CartersWhittling | 18 comments »

Hello. When I left off the chest was built and ready for the tool storage inside. After giving tool storage some thought I decided on having 3 sliding tills, rear moulding plane storage, front saw till, and tool rolls hanging on the front wall. Nothing really new, but I think my tool roll idea is. When trying to come up with ways to store drill bits and/or chisels on the front wall of my chest I came up with an idea involving canvas tool rolls. What I have is nails driving into t...
