I use this adjustable saw to cut the waste from my dovetails. It had a small handle that was uncomfortable so I decided to make one that better fit my hands. It is made from.ziricote and finished with linseed oil and wax.

Hmm. I have one of those that came from it’s maker with wood filler in the handle..
Just might have to warm up the lathe.. Nice job.

Rodney, that’s a fine job on that handle and I’m sure that you will do better work with the saw because of it.
