Milk Painted Dovetail Saw Till

//Milk Painted Dovetail Saw Till

I’m quite interested in refurbishing old panel hand saws, so I needed a new way to store and display them.

I looked at a lot of other saw tills, but decided to just create one from my own mind.

Because of the dark milk paint shade, the dovetail joints aren’t very visible…but trust me, they are there, and yes, they were cut by hand!

And here is the saw till hanging in my new workshop:

Hi Joshua, I just came across your website and i am truly impressed with the amount of work you have put into your site. I am just making the transition into working wood by hand…long term big machine guy for a while. I can use all the help I can get, i will work my way through your site. I like the saw till and I think I may do something similar. Thanks again!

Hi Josh,
I just wanted to say thank you for your site. I’m a career professional woodworker, now a general manager of a commercial cabinet shop. That kind of work is a long way from “Real” Woodworking, and I’m hoping some hand tool woodworking will be just what I need to revive my passion for woodworking.

Thanks again!

Josh, what spacing do you have those saws at? In the process of building my own and that spacing looks perfect.
