A Place for Saws

I’ve got enough saws floating around now that I decided I needed a better way to store them. My little till will be a pretty simple box, dovetailed at the corners, with a drawer (two maybe?) underneath for saw sharpening stuff.

The plan is to store the saws handle down, blade up. The handles will rest on a piece of dowel and the blades will slot into a series of kerfs.

The dovetails came out pretty well, though I screwed up the top rail my first go round, mismarking the location of the pins. They fit great, they were just offset by an inch or so. Sloppy. I also got to cut my very first dado by hand.

 

White pine is fun stuff. Easy to work, smells nice, compresses well. And it’s cheap here in upstate NY.
