Over the past year or so, I’ve become more enamored with hand tools and started moving away from being a pure power tool user. While I like having both options available in the shop, and will need to have my tablesaw pulled from my cold dead hands, I figured I needed a few good hand tools to round out my abilities. To that end, I’ve been scrounging some old tools where I can find them, and made a few where I couldn’t (or that looked interesting).
For general hand sawing I decided upon a bow saw, and received some good instruction from a gentleman who’d actually done some studying under the late mister Fride. The results are shown above. The saw itself is cherry and padauk.
