The only TCM timeline that could be done would be the remake timeline, which has 2 movies, 1 novelization and 18 comic books. The original timeline has too many contradictions to make any sense of it.

Actually there are multiple timelines:
Timeline 1:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre II


Timeline 2:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)


Timeline 3:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) (?)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation


Timeline 4:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)


Timeline 5:
Leatherface (2017)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
The Texas Chainsaw Masacre 3D


Timeline 6:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022)


According to Fede Álvarez, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) is a sequel to the first 4 films that would happen in the same timeline, but there are too many contradictions that the fans have decided to establish them as separate timelines. Also, Leatherface (2017) doesn't really contradicts any of the first 4 films so it can be taken as "canon" in their respective timelines

Texas Chainsaw 1-4 are the same universe. The fourth movie mentions "two minor, yet apparently related incidents" that happened after the first film. Sally going into a catatonic state is retconed, that's fine. It's messy and requires a lot of duct tape, but yeah. The new film would sit in this original continuity somehow I guess...

Timeline 1:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre II
Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022)


Timeline 2:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)


Timeline 3:
Leatherface (2017)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
The Texas Chainsaw Masacre 3D


Hell, why not discuss the whole Slasher multiverse here?

One thing that I see a lot is this. Freddy and Jason films aren't canon to Marvel's Earth-818793 (Army of Darkness comics), meaning Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, because that would mean that two characters who are underage during the comic in the film timeline are... consenting adults, so to speak. It also contradicts other Freddy and Jason comics which should probably be taken as being set in the primary timeline.

Though, according to the Appendix, the Evil Dead Trilogy is canon to this Earth, not just the comics and an alternate version of those films. I suppose we can assume it played out exactly the same but in present day. The Evil Dead television show doesn't fit in this timeline either, though.

There was also a Jason vs Leatherface comic but I heard it didn't fit into canon. Maybe it's a Texas prequel and the Jason variant was chained up earlier, I don't know. Probably non-canon.

Of course, Leslie Vernon exists in a reality where Chucky, Jason, Freddy and Michael all exist. You could say they're all linked if you'd like, but that gets really complicated quickly.

Regarding the many Slasherverse connections, I personally find this to be simple.
Slasher Multiverse
Freddy vs Jason
Friday the 13th film series
Nightmare on Elm Street film series
Notes: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Shocker and Hatchet somewhat occurred in this reality, Necronomicon book exists

Friday the 13th 2
Friday the 13th (2009)
Note: variant of Trent Sutton-DeMarco from Transformers Cinematic Universe exists

Nightmare on Elm Street 2
Nightmare on Elm Street TV series

Nightmare on Elm Street 3
Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Nightmare on Elm Street 4
Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Evil Dead
Evil Dead 1-4 film series
Ash vs. Evil Dead TV series
Note: Freddy Krueger's glove appears

Halloween 1
Halloween (original) film series

Halloween 2
Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Halloween 3
Halloween H20

Halloween 4
Halloween (Reboot) film series

Halloween 5
Halloween (2018) film series

Child's Play
Child's Play film series
Chucky TV series
Notes: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm's Street somewhat occurred in this reality

Etc.

Marvel Multiverse
Earth-818793
Evil Dead 1-3 film series (?)
Army of Darkness comics
Notes: Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street somewhat occurred in this reality

Of course, you can always combine all of the Slasher films, but that causes a bit of confusion such as how Evil Dead is a fictional movie in one of the films. Still, there are some very clear connections throughout all of them that you can take as an implication they exist in the same universe.

God, I'd love to see someone tackle a Friday/Nightmare timeline with all the tie-in material.

Taken from Watchtower Database's video
That's something that's been on my back-burner for years. I'd include Evil Dead with it, though, since Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash is a pretty blatant cross-over and not just a random appearance of a mask, glove or book.

That can't be canon. It contradicts both the other comics and the movies themselves. Certain characters who should be small children in the film timeline by this point are actually teenagers having... you know. Also, Jason X can't be canon with it either because of the timeline. The aforementioned Watchtower Database video goes over it.

It's set in Marvel's Earth-818793, the world where Ash Williams originated from in Marvel Zombies. It's where all the Army of Darkness comics are set. In that reality, the Evil Dead films are set in present day.

The Marvel Appendix explicitly states that the Trilogy occur in this universe, so I assume the events happened exactly as they did in the Evil Dead Universe down to every detail, only it occurred in the 2000s instead of 1981. If that's too confusing, just ignore the Appendix and assume an alternate version of the Evil Dead Trilogy happened but with a modern setting. Evidently, an alternate version of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street series happened as well, except certain characters were born earlier and Jason is never frozen. It's the only way to make it work without compromising the timeline.

Well, NONE of the tie-in material is canon, but you suggested someone compile a timeline anyway, so I don't see why this would be an exception. The only thing I WOULDN'T include is the Texas Chainsaw Movies, because it's unclear which of the many versions of Leatherface appeared in Jason vs. Leatherface.

Why wouldn't tie-in material be canon? All officially licenced tie-in material is canon unless otherwise stated. This is the exception because it contradicts the films, as well as comics that don't actually contradict the films. It contradicts Jason X, dude. Also, two consenting adults have sex, except they're the babies from each franchise and, in terms of the timeline, one should be 20 and the other should be 9!!! Additionally, Evil Dead Trilogy takes place in the late 90s or early 00s, which contradicts Ash vs Evil Dead. In fact, I'm pretty sure Ash even fighting deadites here contradicts the show correct me if I'm wrong.

As I've stated, it's in the Army of Darkness comics book universe (Marvel's Earth-818793). Why would you throw out Jason X, throw out serveral comic books that fit perfectly in the continuity, and assume a 9 year old who looks 10 years older is getting groomed by a 20 year old?

Jason vs. Leatherface can't be canon with Friday the 13th because it changes things too much. Jason's mother has a different name. It could be a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel I believe though.

I'm pretty sure ALL tie-in material contradicts the films. The films contradict each other. Most of the films even contradict THEMSELVES. Blatant continuity errors are as gratuitous in slashers as gore and nudity are. It's a part of their DNA. Some are more egregious than others, of course, but everyone has to draw the line for themselves. I can't tell you what is or isn't an acceptable contradiction, nor vice versa. If one were to embark on this project, your options would be to only include what YOU deem to be "true" canon, or to include everything and let the readers decide for themselves.

And again, you started off by saying:

God, I'd love to see someone tackle a Friday/Nightmare timeline with all the tie-in material.

So I began by responding to that proposal.

Obviously, I meant all tie-in material that fits into the continuity of the films. That's why I included a screenshot from the Watchtower Database video, because those comics do fit as a matter of fact, so why wouldn't they be canon?

Those peices of tie-in material do fit with the films. The films obviously do fit with each other. Earth-818793 does not relate to the canon of Friday/Nightmare because it's illogical. All tie-in material excluding a piece of tie-in material which is completely incompatible with everything and is clearly meant to be an alternate timeline only tying in to the Army of Darkness comic books? Those comics had crossovers with serveral things, it never meant anything beyond that they exist in this alternate Ash's world (Earth-818793). The same way this is an alternate Ash Williams, they are alternate versions of Freddy and Jason. Simple, easy, clean. Everything else, everything that doesn't contradict that is, stays canon. Jason X (obviously) stays canon. The Freddy vs Jason vs Ash comic isn't meaningless either because it's canon to the Army of Darkness comics.

Please explain how a 9 year old is the same age as a 20 year old in-universe. There's some things you can reconcile, but that isn't one of them. In-universe, years aren't fluid, ages aren't fluid, it just can't happen. The whole Jason X debacle is dumb as well. Films over comics, comic contradicts films, comic contradicts other comics, comic must be an alternate continuity. The fact it's in the Marvel Multiverse also makes it disputed IMO.

One of the things being a nerdy fan of many franchises has taught me is that, if you want to, you can ALWAYS find a way to make it work. Slasher movies are made for one purpose (besides to make money, of course) and that's to scare people. Story doesn't even come second. It's probably like 10th on the list of priorities for the filmmakers. If you grew up with slashers in the 80s, you had a choice, either ignore the blatant contradictions between movies, or come up with your own ideas on how it all fits together. But either way, I'd never be so arrogant as to assume that just because *I* can't come up with a way to reconcile the problems of lazy scriptwriters, that doesn't mean there isn't a way to do it. I've seen some people come up with brilliantly creative ways of explaining away contradictions that I never would've thought of in a million years. That's part of the fun of being a nerd!
