Losin light fast and with time a-wastin , I got my Ace bow saw and started sawing and sawing… and sawed some more until I sank it as deep as possible.

Swans and bones – Frame saw for copingParts and Swans I was always fascinated by frame saws (bow saw in US), when I was a boy and visited my friends uncles cabinet making shop and they were hanging there on the wall I loved the look of them, they were like practical sculptures.And for about a year I had the dream to make a frame saw, but I kept finding other projects that came first, and felt my skills needed to grow before doing this.But when I fell over a picture of a frame saw wit...

Hand Saws #1: 15" Bow Saw

06-22-2011 12:33 AM by WayneC | 17 comments »

I recieved this saw in the mail today. It is 25” wide overal and about 14” of exposed blade. I belive it is classified at a 15” saw. There is about 7” of cutting area above the blade. I’m hoping to get a variety of sizes. I had also bid and won a smaller bow saw, but the seller cancelled the transaction after I had paid. He immediately refunded my money, but I was dissapointed. The other saw which was made out of boxwood appeared to be a much nicer s...
