263871 Pier-Rick Lamontagne <foutchibay@g...> 2017‑11‑12 My first real project. My saw till.
Hi Galootians (?!)

I read you every day, even multiples times a day.
You guys and gals are a infinite bank of knowledge and I can't stop
learning from you (even if sometime I need to google something basic as
"milk paint" to understand what you're talking about.

So I want to bring you with me on my first "real" project. My little
sawtill. This project have been made entirely with the hand tolls I have on
hand. No drill or electric saw were harmed in the making of this product.

Take a look if you want to, don't hesitate to correct my mistakes since I'm
here to learn.

I'd like to ask you, how would you finish it ? I'm looking for Shellac here
In northern quebec but can't seems to find any. I don't want to paint it
because of I like how the wood shows.

What product, easily available, would you recommand ? (Butcher block oil
tend to disappear so it's probably not the best product for this intent.)

p.s. What mean GGG ?


Thank you.

Rick.

Excellent first hand tool project - nicely done

You hit all the basics

Mortice & Tenon - Check
Dado - Check
Tongue and Groove - Check
Dovetails - Check

And the photo of tools used is the icing on the cake.

You can buy perfectly serviceable shellac in a can at the hardware store.
Zinsser is the brand we see here in the mid-Atlantic.  Brush on a coat, then hit
it with 220 grit paper, then a couple more coats.  To get a GREAT finish takes
some practice, but to get a good one is not too difficult.

What you did wrong? You made it way too small! It needs room for another dozen
saws!

 Best, Spike

I will always say Hopes brand tung oil. 

It’s on amazon.

That's great!  Congratulations!
Question:  Are you concerned about the angle of the saws in the till?  It looks
like they are fairly vertical, which might allow them to fall off the wall.  If
that turns into a problem, perhaps you can add a swing-away bar to hold them in
place.
Is the space at the bottom for a drawer (for sharpening tools and the like)?
Do you have in mind for the shelf-like space in front of the saws to serve any
particular purpose?  It might become a great home for piles of dust; you might
want to add a slanted board (obviously, only going up about halfway on the
cross-piece that holds the saws so that there is room for the saws to rest) to
diminish the dust.
For finish, Watco Danish oil might be a good choice.  It is your basic oil
varnish--an oil with rosin ester for hardness.  It is incredibly easy to use and
close enough to a traditional finish (i.e., it is not polyurethane) that you
might like it.  If you want a natural resin varnish, you might want to use Tried
& True's varnish oil.
Congratulations again!
Micah

Lee Valley is a lovely galoot emporium and for you they are Canadian!  
(no shipping hassles et on parle la belle langue..)

When you have enough saws for a second till it might amuse you to look 
for the "galoot sawtill" a blast from our early past.

Funny.  I always assumed it met Ghastly Gaseous Galoots.

Well, I always mean it as Gentle Galoots.  Of course, there is always
the tremendous possibility of Gaseous.  There are a few beer drinkers
and eaters of beans in the group, I am sure.....
