Catching Up After A Busy Summer

It's been awhile since I made a post here. I spent most of June, July, August and September doing my summer job, helping fight forest fires throughout the western states. Since then I've been in catch up mode, trying to do everything that didn't get done at home during the summer. I'm finally back to work in my shop now, and my first task was completing a project I started last spring -- a new saw till.

This isn't your average run of the mill saw till, mind you. I wanted to make it big and I wanted to make it fancy. I have some nice saws that deserve a good home, and I also like expressing my artistic abilities in my woodworking projects. I'll be looking at this till for a long time, so I wanted it to be something I enjoy seeing. Based on the feedback I've received so far, I think it is a success. You can read the play by play story about this project here. I'll leave you with a couple pictures to pique your interest.
