  1. I may as well take this opportunity to ask a question. I’m considering modifying the chest design in the book with the saw till lower, to allow the bottom sliding till to slide all the way to the front of the chest. My thinking is that I’d have easier access to the contents of the sliding tills if they were arrayed with the lowest one in the front. Is there any reason that this might be a bad idea?

    • …uhg! I’m just now realising that commenting on an individual photo is stupid. Also, I suppose my question isn’t all that pertinent to the original post. I don’t know if I’ll ever get the hang of this internet thing.

      Paul,

      That modification will work fine. I’ve seen chests with tills that are both higher and lower. You will indeed get more flexibility as to where your lower till can go at the cost of having to reach a little deeper for your saws.

      I like my saws higher. That’s me.
