First attempt at a bow saw. Decided to build a turning saw now and latter maybe, a larger bow saw. Handle hardware and blades are the gramercy kit. The arms and stretcher is curly white oak, the handles and toggle top is Zirikote and finished with BLO and when it dries good I’ll wax it down.
The only thing I could come up with for the tension line was paracord which I’ll change out with braided fishing line. The cord is too thick to fine tension. the kit come with three blades so I’ll use each one for a while to see which one I like best. It’s balanced well and cuts good.
Thanks for looking.
