Saw Till Build

I’ve been slowly remodeling my shop and needed some storage for my saws other than on the shelf on my workbench. Took the opportunity to practice my hand tool skills for some future furniture projects.

Made of cherry with a sycamore shelf and the blocks holding the saw blades are from a neighbor’s oak tree that we cut down this summer. Was going to use the wood for some turning but thought they added a nice visual contrast here.

For those wondering about the hands on the wall, I wanted something fun to help decorate the plywood shop walls so anytime we have friends over we have them trace their hand so we can look back on our friendships and have a permanent reminder of good times in our lives.

I have a similar but not quite as nice collection of saws. Your beautiful cabinet makes my harbor freight magnet bar storage look really sad.
