I’ve had this no name saw for a little while that I had filed to rip. Well the old handle broke so I figured I’d pretty it up a bit. I picked up so afromosia (African teak) which turned out to be an absolutely beautiful wood. It has some curly figure to it as well but unfortunately the bit I used for the handle doesn’t show it. The handle was finished with 3 coats of amber shellac

That looks great! Did you use a template for the layout?

I did. I tried to find a template with a similar sawnut arrangement but once I got involved I realized that that was completely unnecessary. Next time will be all my design. Live and learn

How did you cut the groove for the blade to fit in? I’m doing one now for a old saw. I’m thinking the bandsaw in a jug?
Great job on yours. Love it.

I used another handsaw that has the same thickness plate. For the saw back groove I had to file down an old small screwdriver to make a 1/8 chisel for the groove. Thank you for the compliment
