It is made from Southern Yellow Pine. I built this tool till after watching a Christopher Schwarz trailer for his Anarchist’s Tool Chest DVD on youtube. He took his main hand tools out of the chest and slid them into some type of till or hanging system on his bench. I figured this would also keep me from reaching in and out of my tool chest thousands of times during a work session in the garage. The till currently rests on the back of my workbench out of the main work area but within arms reach. I could not resist adding my Stanley Smoothing Plane and a guage into the shot for a full picture.
I also added a photo of the main books I have received many ideas for modification from and plenty of great reading time over the last several months. From left to right they are the following:
The Anarchist’s Tool Chest (Black Cover) Great for hand tools and tool chest ideas plus much more
The Joiner and the Cabinet Maker (Red Cover) a great read and early look into hand tool work trades
The Essential Woodworker (Dark Maroon Cover) the technical parts and images of joinery
In the Till
5 Marples Blue Chip Chisels (Made in Sheffield England) passed down from my Grandfather
1 Lie Nielsen Dove Tail Saw
1 Stanley wooden and steel square
1 Off Brand Panel Saw
Mount it or make it modular as you choose.
Icheck out a few videos, books, or images and go for it.
It seems to be an easy or at least straight forward build. I had a blast
