Here’s a couple saws I made. Well, I made the figured black walnut handles….the plates and hardware where kits from LJ ErikF (dude’s a pimp).
I call the big one the Beastmaster (a la Bad Axe toolworks). I attempted a nice big handle with a thumb indention. Turned out alright.
The Dovetail went to LJ TerryR for the recent swap. I really dig the copper Erik offers. Looks great with walnut imo.
I tried to do justice with the sweet piece of burled walnut I had:
Some pics of the process:
Making these reaffirmed that I’m better and building furniture than tools. They turned out alright, but I struggle with small detail work. I enjoy the big stuff more. Still, I gave it my best shot.
Take care ya’ll, Red
