This is the first of a few kids sized replica toy tools I am making for my son for Christmas this year to go with his new workbench.

It started out as a small saw from the dollar store that I reshaped into a more vintage realistic looking saw. The handle is modeled after a Disston D7 and the blade has been given a bit of a skew back.

After shaping the blade I filed the teeth down and rounded them over to make it safe for tiny hands to hold without cutting himself but it still “looks” like a usable saw.

The handle is cherry with a danish oil and wax finish and the hardware is some cheap copper post and screws from ACE. I am considering epoxying them in permanently but that has yet to be decided.

Thanks for looking!

Looks like he’ll be making projects “just like dad” in no time.

Did you blue the blade? The color looks a lot darker than it did straight from the dollar store

I did sand the blade with 80 grit then 220 to knock down the shine and add to the “Vintage” look of it.
