So I just finished my latest project: Two sawhandels and backs. I originally bought the blades for making some western still saws because I did not know the differens between japanese saws and western, but when I realised (i’m a noob I know), I thought i’d make them more like japanese saws and I think that the these handels give me freedom to maneuver the saw.
I’v never had a saw like these before, I’m amazed by how fast and clean they cut. They are dozuki type of blades so very thin and they need backs to work.
I made them from small pieces for scrap wood, like an old chopping board, a foot panel and other stuff, so I’m not sure what types of wood I’v uses, some mahagony and beech I know. And I also wanted to experiment with combining different woods. The backs are copper and brass.
So now I’m kinda ready to learn to make dovetails
