Japan cutter saw handle
Can you handle this Napoleon!
I have a few of these red plastic Japan cutters and saw handles, so when Napoleon the other day gave me a little piece of Teak, he had used for a client (on a boat), I knew exactly what to use it for! (Recycle).
So of came the ugly plastic handle, and I reshaped the little teak thing (it was already 6 sided, and the silicone ring was there), gave it an aluminum ferrule, and drilled a hole where I epoxy glued the Japan cutter jaws, the rest was just finish.
Then adding the saw blade I had, and viola: ‘A new little saw’!
Happy to bring beauty into this little fellow, I’m sure it will bring it back to use also.
Hope it could inspire to change some ugly handles,
