I have been watching all of Paul Sellers videos (love that guy) and came across his frame saw video and decided it would be a fun project for myself (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4LohjmskEk)
The saw is made from scraps of oak and a Nobex miter box saw blade (24tpi) I will definitely be ordering a coarser blade as the 24 tpi is way too slow for what I want this saw for but it was lying around… luckily Lee Valley has the same blades in 10 and 18 tpi.
I cheated in a couple of places, used my TS for dimensioning the wood and my belt sander to refine the scallops in the frame pieces. All the rest was cut and shaped by hand. The matching curves on the crosspiece were roughed with a chisel and refined with a file.
All done it took me about 2.5 hours and I am pretty happy with the results. The saw has tons of power and should cut true and fast once I get a better blade. The last two pics show the backside (pic 5) and frontside (pic 6) of my test cut with the 24 tpi blade.
Paul Sellers is amazing, I love his manner when hes is teaching and love all the great tips and techniques he shares. I have learned so much from his videos over the years and I hope he keeps producing for a long time.
Thanks for looking.
