this is my way of organizing my hand saws, its been awhile since i changed things around and ive had them laying on my bench , and its been a sore spot for me every time i looked at them laying there, so today i said , im going to fix this, so i thought about it, and stated to lay them and move them to see what i could come up with…i didnt need anything fancy , just a good secure way to hold them…....and wella it came to me, a simple piece of heart pine with 2 different sizes of dattos that are three inches deep, the saws fit in there great and are very secure, and i can see them well and get to them really easily, i added my own little touch by making a small handsaw out of mahogany and in laid it with black epoxy, i like it…i screwed it to the wall with 2 three inch screws and i sparyed it with about 5 coats of lacquer…oh and a single band of walnut, just to spruce it up some…thanks for looking..and for your comments…i appreciate it…grizzman

Grizz, I think it is important that all your shop tools, holders and jigs look nice and have begun to work at that in my shop. It gives a sense of pride and joy to use something that suits your eye. To I applaud your use of the inlay and walnut stripe. They made me smile. Occam’s Razor should apply to all such practical projects, when it comes to function…as it does here.

Looks good Grizz. The next task is keeping them in there when they’re not in use, lol.

Grizz that electric cord seems to be in a vulnerable spot but the saw holder is a good idea!
