Today, I needed a Bow Saw and could only find some that have a flimsy design, but I did find replacement blades and decided to make one. It only took around 1 hour using some left over Pine and it is much stronger than what I expected. Very pleased with it :)

Nice build. Where did you get your blade?

Hi Wayne,
At the local DIY store. It is a G-Man G40H blade. I have a few G-Man saws and I really like them :)

That’s interesting with the through-tenons. Looks like it works great.

Thanks everyone :) The through tenons allow me to transport the saw and for storing it away. It’s really easy and fast to assemble. The saw works very well. I will make a second smaller one for smaller blades :)
