I made this saw from an old hacksaw blade, a dull one at that. First I burned off the paint, then ground to shape. I found a nice scrap of padauk, routed a groove for the blade then glued the two halves together. I put it on the lathe and turned down the ferrule and slipped a piece of copper tubing over it, then shaped the handle. A little epoxy glue and it was done. Simple project. I was worried that perhaps the teeth would be too fine, but it worked great and it gave me a lot of control carving. It cuts on the push stroke. To see the results of my carving efforts click here. Thanks for looking.
