    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    I like it, I've built a few ... keep it close, friends tend to convince their need is greater.

    Just a small bump...still trying to decide about add storage under the lid, for a couple backsaws...and maybe a compass saw?

    Panel saws are tad too LONG, though.

    Will need to design a couple "clips" to hold the blades of the saws...insert for the handle should be easy enough to do....Hmmm, Pine, or Ash.....might be pine, as I don't trust Ash to play nice with steel items...

    Will have to wait until I am allowed back down into the shop....stay tuned
