Custom made Frame saw from curly maple and mahogany which matches my workbench.
Custom Blade length = 19”
Frame is 1-1/2” wide and 1-1/4” thick, slightly narrowed down and rounded off for hand grips which also gives it a smaller look than it really is.
Blade is mounted on custom made stainless steel clips that are embedded in the mahogany handles.
Tension is applied via stainless steel wire between 2 threaded clips that thread into 2 studs and create tension.
Finish = BLO (my favorite tools/shop finish – easy to apply, gives nice depth, and doesn’t leave a shiny film)
