I made this saw bench a few weeks ago out of simple construction lumber and scraps. It is rough based on the schwarz’ bench but I just threw it together to my likings. It really improved the efficiency of my saws and they are a lot more of a joy to use now.
I also picked up two saws with ugly or dried up and unrepairable handles. Both plates were restored, nuts polished and handles made. The little saw is a disston no.7 panel saw complete with nib, I patterned the handle after a disston no.12. The larger saw is a generic warranted superior saw filed rip. I think the handle was patterned over a disston no.7 but can’t remember exactly. Thanks for looking. – Chris

Those handles look great. Good thing you built a nice testing platform for them.

Nice and very useful projects—I particularly like the top saw handle in your third picture.

Thanks everyone, they were fun to make, and definitely fun to use.
