When I saw Mark's Bow Saw last week, I decided that I would make one. His inspired me to make something I’d been wanting to make for some time.
Mine uses the brass pins from Gramercy Tools. I also followed the plans available as a free download on this site.
The wood is Australian Blackwood. The finish is Tung Oil.
The mortise and tenon joinery has rounded shoulders to enable the cross piece to pivot when tension is applied.
Here’s another shot with the saw leaning against an old wooden smoothing plane.
