A bow saw project #3: Am I running out of projects?

2136 days ago by Texasgaloot | 10 comments »

As of my last blog entry, I had received the hardware from Gramercy Tools, and I’m very satisfied with the quality of materials and service. The shorter blade necessitated a shorter stretcher, which I whipped out in a couple of hours from a scrap piece of cherry. Like many of my shop projects, the finished saw looks different from what I had visualized at the start of the project. The pins that catch the blade simply epoxy into the handles, which are pre-drilled to the proper d...

Keeping track of my wounds: 13 and counting...

I put the order in on Wednesday, the stuff was in my mailbox on Friday, and it came through via priority mail because I’m too cheap to have it overnighted. Now, I don’t care who you are, that’s fast. I didn’t need the overnight service. The pins are a nicely turned brass, and I epoxied them into the handles today. Until I have my lathe built, I’m going to call that one go...

A bow saw project #1: To Build a Bow Saw

2167 days ago by Texasgaloot | 10 comments »

Before I can chronicle more of Moby Plank, which I’m itching to do, I need to get the mesquite legs and stretchers made. In order for me to complete the legs, which will be carved out of 5×5x 36 blocks of mesquite, I need a band saw much bigger than the little hobbiest one I have. I can’t afford a band saw until the project is completed, and I get paid. Hence a conundrum. After pondering possible possible solutions, and my wife objecting to me selling the kids, I struck u...
