The build has begun!!
Today I milled up some curly maple and walnut for the saw till and I was able to shoot a little video of the construction. I am not sure if I will save it up and make a montage of the whole build or break it down piece by piece. I want to save up until I have enough video to make it worth the watch so we will just have to see how much is accumulated with each build.
The till is going to be about 40” tall and 14” wide. It will have a drawer on the bottom for the set and files etc. Standard saw tills have an angled back top, this one is going to be a face frame style cabinet and I have yet to decide if I am going to carve the face frame or decorate it some other way. Inlay is a possibility as is adding rope molding??? just dunno as of yet, but it should turn out nice and will have the same general shape as the picture.

The original drawing looks like this.

The case construction went well, it was just (knock on box) hammering out dovetails all afternoon. Tomorrow I will add in all the internal goodies. I re-sawed a piece of curly maple for the back panel and it is gluing up. All of the pieces in the drawing are just sketches and I have to design them in depth when I build them so there is a lot of leeway in how they are put together and decorated.
