  1. Crown Gents Saw Handle Replacement

    I have been happy with this cheap little saw and it does a good job as a dovetail saw yet the Gents style handle has always felt awkward to use. Yesterday I decided to do something about that and make a new handle for it. Made from cherry and finished with BLO and paste wax. More "In...
  2. My own 9" dovetail saw built from a kit

The kit included the blade which was sharpened and set at 15ppi, a machined brass back and a pair of machined brass fasteners. I made the handle from walnut and...
  3. 9" Vintage Progressive Pitch Dovetail Saw

  10. Homemade Dovetail Saw

    I had an old Sheffield Dovetail gents saw. It had a straight handle that was very uncomfortable and was impossible to make a square cut because it was very hard to tell if it was drifting from a layout line. I knocked the handle off the end of the spine and trimmed the spine to fit around the...

  12. Dovetail Saw

    I was looking to upgrade to a better dovetail saw, but I didn't want to spend a boat-load. So I decided to build it. Side note-think about it. There isn't a project we build that we couldn't buy somewhere. Part of the reason we build it is to have joy and satisfaction from using our hands to...

    I disassembled some pallets and milled the wood down and found a nice planks that were the perfect size for a small box. I didn't have enough for the top so I used a piece of live edge apple.

  19. Gent's Saw Re-handle

    A while back, Airframer posted a project where he had turned a gent's saw into a open handled dovetail saw. That idea bounced around my head for a while, until I decided to do the same. Starting with a Two Cherries Gent's Saw, I then printed a handle template from Tools for Working Wood. In...
