Sorry for the lack of pictures, will post more later. I made this as a gift for my father. It is made of maple lamented around a 1/4 inch strip of Walnut. The handles are Walnut as is the paddle. The string is just tan paracord. The saw is finished with a couple coats of wax.

Awesome. I’ve read about these in library books, but the book with the instructions has been stolen from the library (not by me). I tried cutting with my garden bow saw, and my word, it sure is powerful. As fast as a bandsaw but not as noisy or scary. Also more difficult to control. It’s on my (long) list of things to make.
