For the Christmas Ornament Swap I made a dovetail saw in action. Copy of a Lie-Nielsen saw it has a cherry handle, brass back and brass rod rivets. The saw plate if from a old flush trim saw. The ornament was packed with shavings. The ornament went to “DaddyZ”
I wish all my Lumber Jock friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Wow that’s cool! The detail is so nice on that it’s impossible to tell it’s not full-sized until you compare it to the quarter.
