I made these folding bucksaws for my brother inlaw to use while backpacking. He gave me the idea from some youtube videos. The construction is a tenoned cross member let in to two uprights that pivot on a pin folding under to let the blade rest in a groove to protect you from the sharp teeth. This saw can cut thru a 6.5 inch diameter log,it is mainly used for cutting camp firewood or creating shelters. Made from some walnut scraps and a purchased blade from Bahco,one saw is outfitted with a blade for cutting green wood and the other to cut dry wood, each blade has a different tooth configuration.
