Lovely file holder.
I will look at the blog, it seems like I need to make one of these soon.
What a bunch of sexy file handles, did you make them also?
Always a pleasure to watch your delicate ways.
Best thoughts,

MShort – Thank you.

Mads – No I didn’t make the file handles. I bought one of each size saw file with handles attached from workshopheaven. They also sell them without the handles for when you need replacements.

Oh..er…delicate ways eh? I think you’ve got me mixed up with someone else my friend. :-)

Great blog and photos, Andy. I saw a person selling some of these and I thought, I could make one of my own. Now I’ve seen your version and it’s a much better model to follow. I will make one of these! Great work as always, or as Mads says “Wonderful!”

jeeze, even the saw set is nice and shiny. When posting a project like this you need to remove that square, it distracting.

That’s a very nice set of tools you’ve compiled.

Nice file holder, and a great set of tools.

Thanks guys.

Don – That’s how the saw set arrived from the seller. I bought two of them, one with a small striker for fine toothed saws and one with a bigger striker for hand saws.

Love the way that finish came out…I might have to steel that approach.

Ryan – I like the look of Liberon Finishing Oil, but my God does it stink. The smell lingers for about 2 weeks. At least with BLO, the smell dissipates after a couple of days. i’ve got quite a bit of the finishing oil, so I’ve got to use it up somewhere.
