Let me share with you my latest build: bow saw.
The blade is 12” long, overall design and proportions borrowed from Gramercy bow saw free plans.
The wood is beech, and the finish is couple of coats of BLO.
Handles were made of some fruit tree wood, plum probably.
The brass parts were made from scratch out of 3/8” rod and 1/8” thick flanges that were brazed together.
Couple of “making of” pictures below.
Surprisingly many tools to shape the arms:
Thank you for looking!
