Well… for some reason, (which I will not go into at this time) my desire and love for hand saws has been re-reawakened.
I have this old Disston dovetail saw that I bought a year and a bit ago for $8. What a steal. But the handle is really too big for me, I also think it is kind of ugly. I could shape it so it fits my hand….
But I have this piece of cut off curly walnut..
So I traced the saw handle to some grid paper
Made some alterations…
And started cutting…
I am going to use a band saw to refine the shape a bit, and from there on out… my trusty rasp and files get to do the rest of the work.
After this.. I also have a box saw to make… out of curly maple.
