« Part 4: Posting pictures - try number 2 Part 5 of Dovetail Saw Rehab series no next part

Well I have now finished the rehab of this old dovetail saw. After much sanding, I put some finish on it. I had planned on using tung oil, but changed my mind and applied 4 coats of laquer. Here is the handle after applying finish.

Now for some pics with the handle installed. I think it turned out well. I will post as a finished project as well.

I can only see the top photo but it’s so large I can only see part of the handle. but from what I can see it looks great.

You should probably compress your pictures for use on the web. Somewhere in the picture manager you use is the ability to do that. I use Microsoft Picture Manager and “Compress Picture” is in the menu under Picture at the top. I would use the compression selection for “Web Pages”.

Ithe bottom of the handle does look nice.
