I needed a place to keep all my hand saws, chisels and dovetail guides. So, after doing some research I liked the design of this Saw Till I found in an old issue of Woodsmith, (181) with the curved sides and extended tenons. Everything is made to plan except for two things. I made the kick bar about 2” taller to work with my saw handles and I also modify the lower shelf to accommodate the additional tools. Finished it up with three coats of wipe on poly and a coat of furniture wax.

I really like this, any issues with hitting your hand while getting chisels out?

No problem getting the chisels out. I just slide them towards the slot and lift them out at an angle. It works really well.
