With A lot of resawing coming up in the shop I decided it was time to build a frame saw. I have used a few others before and wanted one for my shop.

This was made from poplar. I love how light that makes it but it is prone to dings, so I am not sure how long term poplar will be. I think next time I will try cherry.

This was made from a Blackburn Tool kit, and I was really pleased with the instructions and product quality.

It goes hand in hand with the kerfing plane I made last week and should be a great addition to the shop.

If you want to se the build video I posted it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1fEYcxM9Ic

Hi James,

Looks awesome. I’ve been eyeing that same blackburn kit. What size blade did you end up going with, and why? Would you pick a different size, now that you have it?
