Project Information

After building the black grain-filled ash coping saw for the swap, I had some ash left. I built another coping saw, slightly thinner, and then grain-filled it with red-dyed fill. It's maybe a little too thin, as it flexes a little in use, but I like the look of it, and will probably use it to destruction. And if it breaks, I'll make it I to another saw that'll be more sturdy.

Looks good Dave,

With the tool swap, I made copies also. I like your idea of having a couple different setups and lengths with the saws.

Yeah, Eric. I've done previous swaps where I didn't make a copy for myself, and ended up kicking myself. Not a huge deal, but it's a lot easier to make a second one when everything is still fresh (and the tools are still out) from the first one.

Of course, if the first one doesn't turn out, then it's the one I get to keep. Had that happen a couple times, too.

I felt like that with the plane swap. Should have ordered 2 sets of blades. My prototype is sitting on the back of the miter saw run out table, collecting dust. That one was cut out of Oak.

Nice saw Dave.

Somewhere I have a kit for one of these. Another thing to go play in the shop making. :)

Yeah, Eric. I have a bunch of spare hardware cluttering up the shop because I always order two (or more), but on things like the plane swap, it let me send a spare to Devin so she could make her plane.

Thanks, Tom!

Could be, Pottz. Maybe Santa has something for you.

Thanks, Oldrivers!

Thanks, SteveN. Note that the pins for these will work with the short coping saw blades, the 12" turning saw blades, or even the 5" hobby hacksaw blades, so make the one that you need the most.

Cool saw Dave. I can kick myself a couple times for not making two of the same item that I made for someone else but it gives me more time in the shop. LOL. I may even have to try this grain fill finish in the future.

Agreed, Dave. It's just that the second one generally goes pretty quickly if I do it right away. If not, I end up straining my fake knees trying to kick myself. ;-)

Cheers, Jim

nice work, Dave. There's something special about working with tools you've made yourself.

Thanks, Ron!

Thanks, Tony! It does pretty good, but it's just a tiny bit too thin. Guess I found what the limits are for ash.

Also nice, think I prefer the black filler though.

I think you're the only person here who now needs a coping saw rack though ;)
You must have ran out of room on the outside of your saw till now.

Yeah, Mike. I prefer the black myself, but I'm experimenting. I'll also do green and blue at some poin. But I've been so slack at cleaning up the shop lately that I just have a coping saw buried in every pile of crap in the shop. Or if I don't, maybe I need to make another. ;-)
