A while back I found a picture of a very nice saw till in one of the forum threads (I’ve searched a lot, but I can’t seem to find it). Since then I’ve been thinking about making one for myself, and I thought I’d start with a Sketchup model to get an idea of what kind of lumber I’d need and how the joinery would work. I’m missing a couple of joints, but it’s pretty much finished and I thought I would share what I came up with.
Here’s the original:
Here’s my attempt at modeling it in Sketchup:
I’m really excited to get started building this, though it’s huge, so I don’t know where I’d put it yet. I made a couple of changes on the path to recreating it; I hope the original builder doesn’t mind. I’m not really sure what the etiquette is surrounding derivative works in woodworking.
Here is a link to the Sketchup file if anyone is interested:
For anyone that downloads the file, I’d be very happy to receive comments and critique.
