Well I had a need in my shop. I use hand saws a lot in my work but this is the way I used to store my beloved collection

Getting to the saw I wanted was always a hassle, I had to juggle through them like I was dealing from a deck of cards, I hated it. Finally the time was right to build myself a saw till and this is what I came up with. Enough space to store all my saws, the long and the short joinery saws, a space to keep my saw vise safe, and a drawer to store all my sharpening supplies. And trying to plan ahead, I created enough space to give my collection room to grow.

Over all dimensions are about 40 inches high by 30 inches wide 9 inches deep. The drawer is about 3 inches tall. It as built of northern white pine all the dovetails were hand cut and the piece was joined with hide glue.

If you want to see more pictures and a detailed account of the build you can read more on my blog by following the link below.

Wauuu, beautiful till, this should hang in your living room.
And so nice to see that you have all the tools to keep them sharp and running.
Wauuuu.

That is exactly what your collection deserves, not just ugly pegboard! I can see why it is a BELOVED collection.
