These are the projects I worked on this winter. The first is a saw till that was in WOODSMITH magazine. It is made of hickory. The second is a case for hand planes built on the same design as the saw till and made of ash. The third is a mallet made of oak for the head and hickory for the handle. The fourth is a display case for my Father-in-Law’s WWII military awards and memorabilia made of mahogany with a strip of maple for accent.

I had fun doing these projects and learned a lot in doing them. I used through tenons on the first two and dovetails on the display case.

Thanks for looking

I really like the saw cabinet. The design looks interesting, I wish you included a shot of the side.

Beautiful saw till. I’ve been bouncing around some designs in my head but now I have something nice to work off of. Thanks!
