Backsaws in a cabinet, backsaws on a cabinet, backsaws in drawers. Things were getting a bit silly, even for my state of the mess. I’ve decided there are some tools (like planes) that I use enough that they should be placed where they can be easily grabbed. Or, just because I like to look at them. Problem was, I just couldn’t come up with a backsaw till design I liked. I had cut all the wood for one before I said “nah”. Dovetails cut on another – too weak. Getting annoyed, I just needed to build something, anything. So, a towel rack and a slotted board. Materials: one Fir 2×4 and a ¾” dowel. Screwed to wall studs (16″ on center). I used the table saw to cut the slots every 1 ½” (½” base of cut to wall). The dowel is 5″ from the wall, which is good for a saw plate up to about 4″. The dowel holders are 1 ½” x ¾” with a 1 ¼” x ½” mortise and tenon. The dowel was a bit oversize, so the ends were stepped and it can’t escape.
- @tigwelder one my planes with a cutting angle of 55. PS didn't realize you were Canadian - Konrad Sauer (#sauer_and_steiner) is amazing.What the parts to dovetailed plane look like. Usually, the pins are peined (to hold the sides on), I'd just as soon braze them. The tall spine is my addition, wood is usually used.
