Saw Till

It's time for a hand saw till seeing they're getting harder to manage as I've increased my number to 8 all tolled. This project will be built with some of the material from a repurposed piano and nearly 100% hand tools. Some of these things are for the first time so it may look a little sloppy.

Quite so, because it's built from a piano! :P

I like how you incorporated the original piano embossing into the new till. One day someone's gonna be scratching their head on that puzzle.

Up-cycling an old piano! Love it! Keep posting pictures as you progress. I am hoping to begin work on my saw till in the next 2 months. I plan to incorporate some 130 year old wavy glass cabinet doors we salvaged from the restoration of our historic home. I want to build the till, semi-airtight and have a de-humidification system hidden in it to protect my saws from the awful northern VA humidity.


I look forward to seeing yours go together and take inspiration from your use of the old piano.

A saw till is a (usually) hanging storage unit for saws that allows easy access.

I think the word "Till" refers to a sorted storage for money, as in a cash register. A Saw till is a sorted cabinet for hand saws.

Hi Trent. How did you go with the saw till? Did you get it finished? I was happy my saws had a home when I finished mine.
Cheers, Tom

Using the felt hammers as separators is a nice touch.

How did you dispose of the heavy cast iron harp? :-p
