Made out of pine. Top holder sit at an angle, so the saw will no “walk out” on their own. You have to lify them by the handle a little bit, and they will come out. Case was built because the old one was a dust trap….saws sat at a bad angle and wanted to fall out…not good.

I made the frame saw a few years ago, out of Maple….blade and saw holders came from old Butcher meat saws…all thread to tension the blade. Witch’s Brew was brushed on, then wiped down. Piano hinge for the door, brass latch to keep the door shut. Counting the Frame Saw..til holds 18 saws…

Thanks for looking in…

Nice. I like the idea of the cabinet to keep the dust and rust away. That is a lot of saws you have.

Nice! Possible to get a shot of the top holder so I can copy your idea?

Why do you need so many saws…? Prolly 2 at the most since you can only use one at a time….!! Kind of like why does anyone need 30 hand planes….? IMO, that’s overkill….!! Just my observation on both. No offence intended.

Well done Bandit!

Am I the only one whose arm gets tired just looking at all those hand saws? LOL

Top hanger..

Sits in a stopped dado…

That is angled so the front is high than the back.

That matches the angle at the front of a saw’s handle.
Both upper and lower holders are cut at the same time

Clamped together, saw blade raised as high as I could go on my saw.

So the slots will line up.

There are 2 saws alike in the Til…both very old Disston No. 7s…made before 1928…with a nib on the blade, no less

There is another No. 7 in the til….made when it was just Henry Disston himself making the saws…even has the early split nut style of bolts….about 1850s.

There is a Richardson Brothers saw in there, and a couple by Atkins. And, this fancy saw…

Either a D-115, or a D-100….I have both….

Recently, was using the Disston D-8, 11ppi crosscut, to help cut the longer boards down to a size I can work with. My “Cardio Workout”.....get as much of a workout running the mitresaw…the Stanley #358, that is.

Nicely designed and built. I like the stopped dado it definitely locks them in place. Very cool.
