Recently I’ve become somewhat obsessed by the puzzle of storing saws.

During my years as a woodworker, I’ve been admonished many times for how I handle this tool. Here are a few choice ones to chew on:

1. With handsaws, you should never lay the entire tool on a flat surface. This will cause the weight of the blade to bend its sawplate. Instead, set the blade alone on the benchtop – let the tote hang off the bench.

2. Never store or set down a saw with the handle on the floor and the blade against the wall. Again, the angle and the gravity will cause the sawplate to bend.

3.
