This weekend, I build my first Bow saw. I used rough sawn Tennessee hickory and rough sawn cherry to build the frame. The hardware kit is from toolsforworkingwood.com. This company has put together a real nice kit. The saw has a 12” blade. I hope you like the project.

If you would like to see a short film of me making the bow saw check out the video link. thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe for many future projects!

I’ve had the kit for a couple of years but the project is still on the to do list.

Your’s looks nice. I figure if I make one, I’ll make two – for course and fine blades.

I have osage, mesquite, cherry, hickory etc. to choose from.

Paul,

Thanks!

Its a fun skill building project. Pay special attention to the scale as that tricked me a bit.

I would like to cut down a bandsaw blade and made a 24” bow saw for big jobs.

I’ve got the Gramercy kit waiting for me to build it too. Hope I can do as clean of a job as you did.
