Well gang, thanks again to everyone for looking in on my blog series of the making of this handsaw handle. The final is here and I sure learned a lot. It fits well in the sawing hand and works better than expected.

For anyone that has the interest and was unable to see the start to finish of this project here are the blog links for you to read in their three segments:

I like a more rustic look as you may have previously read in other blogs, so I went with my same formula of Watco dark walnut danish oil…(say that 5 times fast…lol) and some light coats of clear shellac.

This was a fun, challenging and great learning experience. Making this all with handtools provided me more skill building, understanding and lessons for future projects.

I feel very inspired for the output given the little amount of experience in the craft of handle making. I look forward to sharing more ideas…....and trust me….the sketch pad is getting used again…lol.

All the best,

Yers this is going to be a favorite, no doubt.
Nice work on that saw, it looks just perfect on the wall with the frame saws.
