In the last Popular Woodworking (Issue #226) Mike Siemsen had an article on a Plane & Saw Till. The design is nothing crazy, rather simple, and honestly a style I've seen over and over for several years. I decided to extract the idea of the saw till from the total design, utilize my shop as it is, and make a simple interpretation of the saw till.
Here are the two side by side. Mine on the left, Mike's on the right.
If you do a Google search you will see many variations of this style of saw till, or plane & saw till. Some with doors, more shelves, drawers, double levels for joinery saws, and all sorts of customized options.
So, here is how I built mine, and some of what I did to customize it.
Special Note: I built this entire till on the fly and quickly, as any piece of shop furniture should be built. I started with the plans/ideas laid out in the article, and then just went for it. What does that mean? That means I don't know the measurements, I don't have plans, and it doesn't matter. I didn't follow the written plans totally, just the basic idea. I fit the till to suit my needs and saws. I suggest you do the same. Make it your own, and own it.
About that miter box saw. As luck would have it, the square end of the saw fits perfectly between the handle support and the separators, this locks the saw in place safely and securely. It's so big that placed in the upright position it actually wanted to rock back out of the case, and I really don't want to have a saw fall on my head.
One last thing about the design choices I made. I went with two full width saw separators.
Why? It allows me to add more of either style of saw, or place them anywhere in the till. I can put my most used saws on the left, least used on the right, X-cut on one side, Rip on the other. The only 2 saws that actually rest in both separators are my miter saw, which is a good thing, and my large Veritas tenon saw, and it goes in without a fight. It's a very flexible design.
Overall I am pleased with the till. Holds everything neatly, securely, and in a much much smaller space.
