I am working on another storage cabinet project for my shop and thought it would be nice to integrate a hand saw till into the unit. After looking at several of the ideas that were out there, I finally took what I liked from some of them and drew this up on a note pad. The box is 32” tall, 19” wide and 11 1/2” deep. The blade guides are 1 1/2” x 2” and the kerfs are 2” apart and 1” deep. The handle support is 1 1/2” x 1 1/2 and I adjusted the angle to best support my 28” saw but worked pretty well for the backcut and hacksaws as well. Once I got motivated, it took about 20 minutes to cut out and assemble this part of the new cabinet. When the whole thing is done, there will be doors on both the saw till and hand plane till. An interesting side note: That 28” saw was my grandfathers who was the family woodwoker. I also have a hand plane and a Porter Cable Router that were his as well. He has been dead for over 45 years so there is no telling how old those items are.
