    A simple saw till made from reclaimed pine fashioned after the bookshelf in Paul’s book.

    Looking good, Martin. Just shows that with the basic techniques that Paul has shown us, so many different things can be built. We’re limited by our own imagination.

    Thanks Matt, Paul’s quality approachable instruction in both print and online formats have struck a chord with me. I can only agree that a good understanding and honest practice of the fundamental techniques that he has demonstrated is a wonderful source of bringing the imagined to realization.

    LOL perfect for Paul Bunyan style joinery. Picked it up at a 4th July flea market in Fairplain West Virginia for $7, it sure gave the TSA folks something to talk about on the flight home. I have a lovely old 8″ Disston “Jackson” that is used for dovetail duty.

    Your till looks great. May I ask if the bottom shelf is glued only or did you dowel or screw it on or otherwise reinforce it? My wife is involved with a local theater group and they get a souvenir mug from each production. I was thinking of making a variation of this wall unit to display her mugs but I wasn’t sure if the bottom shelf would be strong enough gluing into end grain like that. I am pretty new to this and would welcome your opinion. Of course the mugs aren’t THAT heavy however I would feel terrible if any got broke.

    Hello Wayne,

    Just like Paul’s original the bottom shelf is attached using glue in well fitted stopped housing dado joints. Feel free to reinforce with screws or dowels if you like (added insurance – it all depends on the weight you expect it to support). I have no plans to reinforce this one as a larger unit built a couple of years ago for our daughter’s pantry has shown no likelihood of failure.

    Thanks Martin.

    Thanks Martin, great to hear your positive result. I just don’t have much experience with glue yet though haven’t seen anything fail to date myself. I hate to pollute the design with screws or some such so I think I will go as is.

    Very well executed!
    I built something similar to yours (not as beautifully executed) with the piece where the saws are inserted into which is not glued. This way I can modify the existing piece or insert a new one if I decided to change the way I spaced the saws

    The best part is that you are able to change the design if it does not work the way you want it to. Total creative control as well as great learning experience.
