Had a little fun, a nice break from my chair build and finally did something to benefit the shop, I just happened on a simple hand saw till by Lee Valley and on a whim I decided, what the heck, I have some scrap, and a little time, and a few saws that are currently hanging on nails on my wall. They need a home, and I liked the idea that it sits on french cleats and I can remove it and have it nearby where I am working, if needed, I seriously doubt it, my shop is small enough that a little 10 walk to the wall where the till is hanging, aint gonna kill me. Anyway, I had some scrap prefinished maple ply from a project I did last summer for my day job. You can see the ply I had to work with on that project, the scrap I have today came from that job. This is not an in depth how-to like my chair topic is, this was just a quick down and dirty fun thing I did, and I used my Shopsmith for 100 percent of the work. I used the Table Saw, the Band Saw, the Lathe and the Drill Press to build this handy little tote. I turned the 1" dowel from some walnut I had. On a side note, our dog Woody, last year he turned deaf, before he hardly ever hung out in the shop, he didn't like the noise, not just machinery noise, the hammer, a piece of wood dropping, anything. I am sorry he went deaf, but as a neat byproduct of him going deaf, he hangs with me all day in the shop now, he'll lay down right next to that Shopsmith when it's running, he can't hear anything! I have the sides and the dowel mounted, I just need to mount the kerfed blade holders, I have the longer holder for the longer saws, and the two slot holder for the two smaller saws, that holder needs to be mounted a bit lower to accommodate the small saws. My longer saws are neat ol saws, two cross cut and two rip, the first long one with the shiny handle was a gift from oldest daughter 3 Christmas's ago. I recently purchased the two smaller Lie Nielsen Carcass and Dovetail saws. The walnut is sanded to 400, once I get the kerfed supports mounted I'll just hit it with oil and call it good. Then I'll mount the french cleats on the back and on the wall to hang it. The first saw is a nice Disston D-9 12 tpi. I'll put some maple edging on the maple ply back board. Attached hereon are the plans from Lee Valley for this till. Very simple, down and dirty. I have 5 or 6 other saws hanging around, the ones in this till are my favorites, the other saws I'll sell or give away, I only want to keep what I need, I am not into collecting. Thank you Lee Valley! Lee Valley Saw Till.pdf
Might be about time to thin the Herd a bit..? This is half of the block planes....the "good" set..and... And the rest of them. Might have to sell a few off? No, the last plane will not quite fit in there....about 1/8" too narrow. Almot like clamps, can't ever have too many?
