I started with what I believe to be an old tenon saw without any tote, 13 TPI and 12” in length. Found a chunk of walnut and copied a couple of tote patterns from the Lee Valley web site. Took the saw apart, cleaned it up as much as I could then cut 1 1/4” off the back side. Drilled out for the handle, broke one tote while doing this. (note to self, if you have time to make one you have time to make two). Used a spray on finish, put it back together and am ready to cut some wood. It appears to be solid but dull. Next step is to learn to sharping the teeth. Thanks for looking.
