i build a saw till, my first large project but the saws don’t fit right. The only way they fit is teeth out. What can I do to fix the till so i can put the saw teeth in. If I do this the way it is the saws fall out thanks

Can’t really tell what the exact problem is, but maybe a secondary bar (like a towel rack) on the lower front panel high enough to catch the horns of the saws.

Maybe lean it back at the top? Add a 20 degree wedge to the bottom of the til, so the til will lean back at the top.

Or, build one like this?

I figured i need a bar across the front about 2” from the front, that will give the saw enough lean so they won’t fall out. My question is how do I do this without making the till look like a piece of junk. there is a picture with out the saws and one with a brown triangle piece I had, something like this may not look bad but i am not sure how to go about it. I have a piece of 1 1/4 dowel I can use thanks

It looks in your earlier pictures that the bottom piece on which the handles rest needs to be further away from the back to allow you to turn the saws around. If you can add a “wing” on each side that holds the dowel away from the current front of the till, that might work. Here’s a crude “sketch”

I know that is what I need to do, I want it to look good but I guess that won’t happen. anything I do will look like a patch. Thanks mike
