I saw this idea last night while looking at old vintage tools. I thought it was be simple and quick to build. The wood is white oak, and the blade is from an old bandsaw blade. Mortise and tenon joint for the front fulcrum, and the rear blade/ tension anchor is a thru tenon. Cuts fairly well for a dull blade, just need to learn to sharpen it. Ive made a “H” frame bow saw, which I never reach for due to the lack of control I have over the cut, so this saw not being as top heavy, it will get more use hopefully.
