This turning saw is built using the kit from Tools for Working Wood, along with their excellent free plans. The frame is hickory and the handles are cocobolo. The only reason for the fancy handles is that the wood was laying around by my lathe being useless at the time. The hickory came from leftovers from making the slats for my Wing Chun dummy. It seemed like as good a time as any to make the saw, since everything except the hardware kit was already present and accounted for.
This kit makes for a simple project well within the reach of most woodworkers, and ends with a new and extremely useful tool for the shop. For full details of construction, read my series of blog articles:
