I would like to apologize in advance, I know some may be thinking, “Oh great here he comes again with ANOTHER saw.”
I have been making a lot of them lately, they are a fun hobby and I don’t post every one I make as a project, but this one needed to be posted.
This saw is for fellow LumberJock James Wright of Wood by Wright on Youtube.

I met James thru youtube and worked with him on a collaboration video where we made shoulder planes. I have since talked with him quite a bit and we have become good friends. I got to hang out with him a bit at this years WIA in Cincinnati. So I thought I would make him a saw.

This dovetail saw has a slight cant to the 10” blade. The handle is Oregon Myrtlewood, my local favorite.

He isn’t getting this for FREE of course ;) He gave me one of his logo shirts and is going to make me something fun.. not sure what yet, but I know it will be cool. I am hoping for a chisel plane or low angle type plane, hint hint. ha ha.

Very glad I was able to make my friend a saw. Hope he enjoys it.
Thanks for reading.

-- Brian Noel

I’d do more than make out with it… I’d have little 8” dovetail saws popping out of it in 9 months.

I do sell them, I ask $225 for a dovetail saw like this. I try to make it fit your hand and I can make it from a variety of woods.
I will have one for sale on Thursday that looks different than this, but it is nice. I will be selling it on My Instagram account. first come first serve. ;)
It looks like one I saw at WIA that I really liked. You don’t see many like it anymore and I had to start making them. It has a beech handle and a 6” blade. It looks similar to this one.
