Finished building my tenon saw kit, I ordered this to have a crosscut saw to accompany my rip dovetail saw kit. My first attempt ended up as firewood, when i tried to cut the seating I cut it crooked so the blade wasn’t square to the handle and to top it off the handle wasn’t big enough for three bolts.

I started fresh and this time things went alot better. I made it out of bulletwood and finished it with shellac. I have a small crack that I filled with super glue, so we’ll see how that holds up. This saw cuts very well, I cut a piece of 4/4 maple with it and a small piece of mahogany for a box.
