Since I received my new Lie-Nielsen crosscut carcase saw yesterday, I decided to proceed on a saw till for the tool chest. After looking at a lot of pics on the web I decided on a fairly simple design. Now I haven’t used sketch up yet so you’ll have to pardon my hand drawings.
I cut 2 pieces to length with my new cross cut carcase saw and squared the ends up on the shooting board. I then marked the boards so I would always know how they are suppose to be oriented (I learned this in Chris’ class).
I left myself plenty of room so I wouldn’t over cut. It looks like I did on the crosscut for the lowest step but I didn’t. The back piece shifted on my bench hook when I was making this cut but it was in my favor. Lucky me! This lower steps is a sixteenth to tall, but I’ll fix that tonight. Stay tuned.
