This saw is about 30” x 18” and made with some scrap sapele wood. I used 1/2 inch carriage bolts and 3/16 inch bolts, and I removed the zinc plating by soaking them in vinegar overnight. The blade comes from highlandwoodworking:
I glued guides on the ends to keep the blade from twisting.
This saw makes it easy to rip thick slabs of wood into thinner boards if you don’t have a band saw. So this saw should give me the ability to make boards or veneers. It is also nice to have a kerfing plane which cuts a groove all the way around the slab so that the frame saw has a guide, which is easier than trying to follow a scribe line.
