I really enjoyed building the last saw handle, and I decided to make another. I bought another used Disston K1 saw on Ebay again, and made a handle for it. This one is Cherry. I also cleaned the saw plate, sharpened it to crosscut teeth, and waxed it and finished the handle with my oil wax. Now I’ve got myself a nice pair of tenon saws that’ll cut rip and cross cut, fit my hand perfectly, and look good to boot!
