  1. Meet Mr. Bowsaw

    I recently decided I needed a smaller bowsaw. I already have a big one so I had a go on a 12" bowsaw. The frame is made of cherry from my sister. These were suppose to be drawer fronts for her kitchen drawers, but the contactor drilled them wrong or something, so they landed on my doorstep. I...
  2. Swan neck bow saw

    I purchased the hardware from Gramercy Tools (toolsforworkingwood.com). The stretcher is cherry wood, the swan neck cheeks are hickory (the wood Gramercy uses for their build). The handles and the toggle are from a wood pile of "domestic cutoffs" at Woodcraft. It's a light wood with prominent...
  3. Parsons table, parsons 2.0 and a bow saw

    This is our parsons table in oak and walnut. First of all: the walnut inlay is here NOT to hide poor glueing. The glueing was pretty decent… but the customers wanted the inlay. As you may notice the table is made against the rules. There is not any place for the tabletop to change its...
  4. Bow saw, take 2

    This is another bow saw made with the kit from Gramercy Tools. The previous I had made into a swan neck, this time I wanted to follow their original design. I toyed with making it out of ebony because I had seen a beautiful one on the internet but opted not to because of cost. I had been...
  5. Danish framesaw restored

    Danish frame saw restored actually not a lot… Today I passed a flea market, and it was all old clothes, but when I was leaving I spotted this old saw and asked the guy what he wanted for it - 5 dollar was the answer, and I just said top, no fighting about this price… So half an hour of restore...
  6. Small Bow Saws

    I made these bow saws using the Tools of Working Wood kits. Maple arms and handles, cherry stretcher and the little wedge is eucaliiptus. They are about 12" long and work great!
  7. A simple frame saw - you can do that!

    A simple frame saw. you can do that! This is a frame saw I made yesterday. I needed some shop time to clear my head, and was thinking of our LJ buddy WayneC that said he wanted to build one, so the choice was easy since I already bought the blade some time ago. The pictures are from my blog...
  8. Turning Saw

    This turning saw is built using the kit from Tools for Working Wood, along with their excellent free plans. The frame is hickory and the handles are cocobolo. The only reason for the fancy handles is that the wood was laying around by my lathe being useless at the time. The hickory came from...
  9. The Bow Saw

    This weekend, I build my first Bow saw. I used rough sawn Tennessee hickory and rough sawn cherry to build the frame. The hardware kit is from toolsforworkingwood.com. This company has put together a real nice kit. The saw has a 12" blade. I hope you like the project. If you would like to see a...
  10. Small turning saw

    After making my first turning saw I wondered what would be different if the saw were made with shorter arms (or cheeks) so I set out to make another one and find out. This is the result. I used the same Gramercy Tools Bow Saw Kit as I'd used for the first kit, but instead of making the arms...
  11. I like making things and I like frame saws. You can guess what happens next

    More pictures and info can be found here I've been looking into getting a frame saw (bow saw) for quite some time. The ECE saws are expensive and I prefer a spanish windlass over a rod or wire for tension. This is the end result I ordered 2 Putsch blades from Highland woodworking - the 700mm...
  12. Rebuilt Bow Saw.

    I was given the original of this bow saw a little while ago and greatly admired its elegant shape. The problem was that it was riddled with borer to the point of disintegration. The only way to have my cake and eat it was the complete remaking of all the affected parts. You can see the result...
  13. Bow Saw

    I recently asked a forum question about cutting a circle. From that I basically came up with two ways to cut a large circle: Cut the square into an octogon, then a polygon, and keep cutting until you smooth it out with a spokeshave or plane. Use a bow saw to cut the circle then smooth out...
  14. A Refurbished Bow Saw (Moa Saw).

    I am in the middle of a bow saw fetish at the moment. Could be worse things to get hot and bothered about I suppose. Actually I have several in all states of disrepair in my shed and I figure they are of no use to anyone until back in working order. This was the ugliest saw I have ever seen...
  15. Gramercy tool bow saw

    Bow saw made from a kit from Gramercy tool. I made it all using hand tools (except the holes for the brass saw pins) I even whittled the handles because I don't have a lathe but I only attached them to the brass pins with hot glue so I can replace them easily when I can either make or buy better...
  16. Folding frame / buck saw - hiking version. (post).

    Folding frame / buck saw hiking version Inspired from this antique folding frame saw I bought, I decided to build my own version for hiking use. Went for a fixed blade and string for the tensioning, so I could keep the weight down. It has become a loved companion on my hammock hikes now, a...
  17. Kauri Clock

    Kauri Clock 380 mm in diameter finished with teak oil. Comments welcome.
  18. Updated Turning Saw

    I updated and refined my turning bow saw. I made a turning saw several years ago and I decided to reshape the saw and update the hardware. I think it is a big improvement over the old version in the last picture and it works much better now. I provide more details in this blog entry if you...
  19. Coping saw

    This is a coping saw I built from citrus wood I got from AZWoody a couple years ago. It's really a pretty striking yellow, and I think the contrast with the coffee used while kolrosing it makes for a good look. Construction details are in the blog I wrote while working on it. Pins came from...
  20. Red grain-filled ash coping saw

    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...
