  1. 9" Dovetail Saw for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap

    This was my entry for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap (ErikF had inspired me to build a saw even before the saw swap began. You should check out his blog tutorial on the tools for making your own saw from scratch.) I quickly discovered that building a handsaw almost entirely from scratch was...
  2. 20-inch Panel Saw

    It has been a little while since I have posted a project, so here is a recently completed saw build. 20-inch panel saw, filed cross cut, with a curly maple handle patterned after a Disston D-7 panel saw. I have wanted a Lie-Nielsen panel saw for some time (actually a pair of them in rip and...

    The Saw Plate I haven't got a very large workshop, or bench. I enjoy using hand tools, and often make small rip cuts at my bench in the leg vise. I've wanted a small panel saw, in the 16-18" range, for a little while now. I made the decision to try making my own, and a couple of weeks ago I...

    First machinery-free shop day Shop's Log: January 11, 2014 Today was a good day in the shop. Spent most of the day on two projects and didn't turn on one piece of machinery. The only things that plug into the wall that were switched on were the lights, heater and radio. Time for a new...

    A Borg Backsaw I thought it would be interesting to try another inexpensive build and decided to re-purpose one of the Home Depot Husky 14" backsaws that sell for a little less than $9 USD. Here it is in its natural environment. On first inspection, you see that its made in the USA (from...
