  • Saw Till

    Made from the left over ash from my tools cabinet doors, nailed construction with some salvaged nails from a house built in the 1890s. the ship-lapped oak back came from a skid. Still awaiting 2 drawers (to hold sharpening tools, etc) but otherwise 90% done. Run through the planer than a very light scrape, (it is shop furniture) finished with 3 coats tung oil. Now I am limited in the amount of saws I bring home from garage sales lol

    The saws don't seem to be well secured, or protected. They seem a little balanced. Here is a thread you may find interesting.

      Looks great! Not nearly big enough for my needs, but good job none the less.

        Thanks Ryan, Toby I agree: The saws don't look very secure. My intention was to add a separate strip of wood about 2" above the bottom for the saw handles to sit on and I even milled it up but I ran out of nails! However, I have had no problems with it as is and I'm going to leave it. The angle is enough that the saws are not going anywhere and they have passed the toddler test! (I have a two-year old).
