Saw Till

Well…. having bought a new drill press and built a fence for it (see previous project posting) I needed a project to try it out. So, I decided I needed a new saw till as I had filled up the old one and saws were getting spread around. The photos show the sequence of construction from drilling the holes to chiseling out the mortices, mounting to the wall and installing my hand saws.

I am a happy camper as the drill press worked great – especially the laser cross hair as that was a big help – and I have a new and more convenient saw till!

Interesting concept. Nicely done. You obviously have a “thing” for handsaws!

The only concern I would have with that design is I am an accident waiting for a place to happen. I would have to turn that around and mount it with the cutting edges towards the wall or I would inevitably cut myself. Thank you for posting your design. You did a fantastic job on it!

You know what, when I hang around sharp things I always cut myself eventually. In reality, the hieght of the unit and the set back of the saws are such that you would have to try hard to contact the teeth.

Thanks

Hi firehouse

I do have a thing for hand saws and enjoy developing hand tool skills. I am not yet the sawyer I aspire to be but life needs its challenges.

Best regards

do you have three RC saws sitting there? wow.I have a lot of saws and hand tools because I was unpowered for about 5 years, but those are way too expensive for me.

Hi Junior Joiner – yes there are three Rob Cosman saws – one of which is not available commercially, only 25 were made. They are expensive and the Lee Valley saws are a good option. The Rob Cosman saws are much more aggressive in the hands of a skilled sawyer (not me).

HI Don;

Now that’s a set of hand saws allright. Might be leaning towards some sort of dissorder. (like me and my carving tools). LOL

Nice job on the till.

Hey Don
This looks like a great idea! I’ve got to many saws and they are scattered around the shop area. Now, if only I had some wall space left.

I had the same wall space problem but a reorg took care of it – there is always a way to accomodate tools.
