  1. Frame saw (small)

    First off, the pictures seem to uploading in the correct orientation and then somehow aren't… sorry. So this is the small frame saw kit (metal bits) from Blackburn Tools. Isaac has template for the saws on line. I had this made before the kit showed up. Still need to sharpen the blade. Yes...
  2. Rroubo Style Frame Saw

    The Roubo Style Frame saw is a tool I made int he past, but I needed to remake it as I broke my old one. This in one hand tool that can completely change the way you work. My last one was dropped and it blew out one of the mortices, and there were a few small tweaks I wanted to make on this...
  3. 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...
  4. Bridle kerfing plane

    This is a kerfing plane which is used to cut a kerf around the perimeter of a board which then makes a nice guide for resawing with my frame saw I used my old plow plane as a model, see the last photo. It had decoration on the arms, fence and arm supports so I tried to duplicate that on my...
  5. Bad Axe Roubo Frame Saw

    Got a frame saw kit with lumber from Bad Axe Toolworks back in May and finally got around to assembling it this week. It was a fun build. You need to notch one of the two handles for the bracket for the saw plate, but not the other. Unfortunately, I notched them both, and then had to patch one...
  6. Large Frame Saw

    I build a frame saw using the 48"x4" kit from Blackburn Tools. The frame is made from a chunk of storm-fell maple. I left the bridle joints on the frame unglued, the tension in the blade will hold it together. The handles and stretchers are still rough because I wanted to make a few test cuts...
  7. Frame saw, re-sawing by hand

    After having less then desirable results resawing with my 14" RIDGID band saw and looking for a solution or alternative I found a couple blogs and set about making a frame saw and re-sawing by hand. You can check out the blogs here: http://hyperkitten.com/woodworking/frame_saw.php3 and here...
  8. 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...
  9. Gang Saw - Frame Saw

    I've had the desire to build a Roubo style frame saw for a while now. It is not that I want to get into sawing veneer. It just seems to be a more stable method than my previous efforts Then I got to overthinking it, and thought, "what about a gang saw?" A Roubo style frame with 2 blades...
  10. I Made A Bowsaw

    I made a bowsaw for the toolmake18 contest on YouTube. It was my first time making one but I really like how it turned out. The saw is made out of walnut with a maple tension peg. I used paracord to tension the bowsaw as I couldn't find a more traditional looking cord to use. The hardest part of...
  11. Frame Saw

    (Update: This project was featured in the October 2018 issue of Popular Woodworking.) This is a frame saw for my workshop that I recently completed. The basic dimensions are about 33" x 16", although the handles are about 30" wide. This is my own design and was built with hand tools. The two...

  13. 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...
  14. Portable Roubo Saw

    I live in a flat so space is at a premium and power tools are too noisy. I needed a way to re-saw lumber and found out about a "Roubo Saw" but all the kits seemed huge and clunky so I hummed and hawed about making one because my friend has a bandsaw… but now I cannot visit my friend because of...
  15. 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...
  16. Axe & saw sling - thank you Yeli

    Axe & saw sling thank you Yeli This is an axe and saw sling for the days in nature, just to make it more easy to bring the tools and carry them, when you also carry the wood back to camp. Pictures: 1. The sling on the back, ready to go. 2. My dear Yeli by the sewing machine, in my work shop...
  17. BOW SAW aka "The PineBeast"

    Well here is my take on the "Bow Saw" or "Turning Saw". I have enjoyed the various versions all the folks on here make and have been greatly inspired. But I would like to thank a lumberjocks buddie of mine Mads for his inpirational work and his tutorial on building a frame saw. It was a great...
  18. Frame Saw

    Another project I'm working on involves re-sawing, so I made this frame saw. It uses a blade from an E.C.E. bow saw, sharpened for ripping. The frame has single through dovetails at the corners, and the ends were shaped into comfortable handles using a draw knife, rasp and file. The blade is...
  19. Frame saw blade

    Hi, I know this project is not made of wood but it will be cutting wood. I made this blade two months ago. I ordered 1095 steel sheet of 100 cm x 7 cm and 0,8 mm to make a 32 in. frame saw blade. A used a blackburn tools template for 4 1/2 ppi and with the help of two files I made it. It took me...

    Swans & bones a bow coping saw Story: Here is a link for the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/32147 Do I need another coping saw? No I don't! Then why? I wanted to and I had to! Yes the tool maker strikes again (I know I have a serious problem). I was always fascinated by frame saws...
