So cool, Ron! I really like the color of the cherry, and the carving on the sides. Um, and the execution of the project. Yeah, it’s all cool!

This is a very interesting project. I like the all-wood approach you took.

How easy is it to tension the saw without shifting the blade’s position in the frame?

Thank you! Blade tensioning is easy …
 

 
...just hold blade housing in the center of the handle with thumb and index finger and give the wedge a few taps … doesn’t take much!

Very nice, one sweet saw. The carving is a nice touch.
The teeth look to be very aggressive, should cut nice & fast. How is it for staying true & not wondering off course? With a blade that wide, I’m guessing it stays on course.
I noticed you went with metal pins over the original wooden dowels. Did you experience any problems?
Nice work, now enjoy using it.

On display at OSV!? That’s not far from me and we go once or twice a year. I guess it’s part of the Planed, Grained, & Dovetailed exhibit? I don’t remember seeing a frame saw there…
