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!
