My basement workshop space is tight and I have a lot of hand saws and planes. I needed a piece of furniture that could combine both a Saw Till and a space for Planes that fit into a tight space under a wall cabinet. After much research and some measuring, I built this Saw & Plane Till Cabinet. My son helped in nailing the cabinet together and performing most of the painting.

A 1×12x8 was purchased to construct the sides and back of the cabinet, but the top, bottom, shelf rails, saw till and plane shelf were all palette wood and cut offs.

The cabinet is just under 44 inches tall and about 22 inches wide.

The saw till holds 9 hand saws and the internal shelf and top provide space for various hand planes. The internal shelf holds a set of 14 mini (mujingfang) hand planes that I purchased from songtieling via eBay, a mujingfang grooving plane and a Stanley 71 router plane,

I discovered that the edge around the top shelf is deep enough to hold clamps all the way around, however there is currently not enough room around the cabinet to place my clamps around the outer edge of the top shelf. I will have to do some rearranging to pull this off, but that would make it a Saw, Plane and Clamp Cabinet!

I estimate that between the wood, a new bottle of glue and the quart of paint, I spent about $30.
