    Handsaw Storage

    As explained in the Hammer thread, I have had the new shop for about 3 years and handsaws have never had a home - they just get piled on the counter. I need to solve this but I am very VERY low (i think out) of wall space and pegboard space.

    I found Jerry's saw till and would love it if I could find a place to put it. Here's a pic of that:

    If I can consolidate my overhead cupboards to eliminate one, I might still build this to put in its place but that's a pretty long shot since the doors of all my uppers are pegboard and covered in tools I use all the time.

    So I have two smallish - 14" long handsaws - one backsaw and one utility saw, cheap ones and i'll likely be getting more. I also have that nice Disston D-8 that I got. Plus a couple hacksaws and a coping saw as well as a Ryoba Jappanese pull saw and a flush cut saw. This is one category of tools that will likely expand quite a bit so it'd be nice to have space for more than just what I have...

    So - what's everyone got for saw storage? Is it feasible to put 'em in a drawer? My D-8 won't fit in my drawers... hmm ...

    let's see yer handsaw storage!

    You DEFINITELY do NOT want to see MY handsaw storage, Jason. Only two have a "place"... the felling saw and the bucksaw. The rest are mostly piled on top of cardboard boxes fulla' other tools & materials.

    Re: Handsaw Storage

    For what it's worth, here's my method. They're all hangin' on peg board, in one area, so all within easy locating space. Problem is bein' stacked three deep

    Handsaw? Wassat? Actually I own three or four, but I have only used my little drywall saw in the last few years. I bought a generic backsaw/miterbox combo a couple years ago after my slider got stolen, but when the flame hardened teeth(seriously?) started popping off on the ash trim I was trying to finish, I tossed it. I used a hacksaw to finish the job, and that pretty well finished the miter box as well. I got three or for hacksaws, one in each tool group(see hammer thread) The Distons(sadly) lean up against the tool chests. They look so sad...
    one of these days I'm gonna write a really great sig line

    I think, therefore I'm more confused than when I began.

    I do not have a real nice hand saw collection.

    I do have a few nice hand saws.

    They are in the plastic sleeves in the bottom draw of my tool chest.

    I liked Jerry's wall saw till, but I made a chest for my most favored saws and related paraphernalia, they still live in that box.

    This keeps the saws, saw vise, and saw sharpening files all in one place.

    My utility saws, the ones that any one could use without bloodshed, hang on the wall on 16d nails.

    Excellent stuff!

    Dave, that's awesome! I like how you organized 'em so they took up as little space as possible. High density storage!

    Now I just gotta find a place to put one of these fine things

    Thanks for the ideas!
