Well, here it is almost the middle of June and I haven’t posted one thing this year, and this isn’t much. I made and posted a handle for one of my pole saw blades before but I broke it. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/102247 I like this one much better. Pole saws are great but I needed something a little more compact for trimming the lower branches.

The last two pictures are representative of what has occupied much of my time recently. We have 11 acres of pine and fir trees that needed thinning. We had a logger come in and do the job but they leave a mess and so I have been busy cleaning up after them.

It was good to get back in the shop even though it was just for an hour or so. Thanks for looking.

I like that saw a lot Lee. It will be very easy to carry around and do your chores. Nice job.
At first when I looked at the pictures before reading I thought you cut all those logs with it. LOL. Glad to see you didn’t.

Hey Lee,

At least you got into do something. I’ve not done any real wood crafting since last April! Grrr! Built a shed for lumber/lawn tractor, and a wooden door awning, but no fine stuff. 11 acres of pine and fir? Maybe you can plant some hardwood saplings indigenous to your area? In my readings I found that the insects from one help the other.

Looks like a good comfortable handle for that blade Lee! Glad to hear you got some shop time in. Photo 5 reminded me of when we once burned wood to heat our house back in MA. many years ago. I loved cleaning up our little 2 1/2 acres. Now I sweat year round here in FL. LOL!
Nice work on your handle!

The handle looks great. Even when shop time is short. It’s always nice to get back out there. Nice job.

It is just the ticket for sawing low hanging branches.

Thanks Dave, I like the aggressiveness of the blade, just a few strokes and the limbs are off. Those big log processors are something to watch.

Hey Tom, you got to have a place for the equipment. I’m short a few sheds myself. I have planted some oak but I won’t live long enough to enjoy their shade. LOL!!

The handle feels great. I sort of contoured it to my hand although I told my wife I made the saw for her :-). When I woke up this morning it was 39 degrees out side. I can deal with the cold but not the heat. That was one of the reasons we moved from Texas.

“Nice work on your handle!” Tony C. Tony is correct, very well done!

Lee that is a good looking handle. I bet that saw really does the trick. Looks like you really have your hands full now.

Thanks Jeff. The saw is great for quick removal of tree limbs. Cleanup after the logger is a real chore.
