Here is a bowsaw I finally got around to. I needed it for a few other projects so it was time to do it. I got the the pins from Tools for Working Wood and found them to be excellent and very helpful in my construction. I used the design from their website for the parts as well. My turnings are pretty rough as I have just started working on the lathe. I’m excited to have this saw instead of the poor coping saw I was previously using for curved work.

Awesome saw!
So how does it cut? Did you brought the blades from TFWW (Gramercy) too? What wood did you used?

I have been wanting to make one as well.
What is the distance between pin to pin on the blade? They are 12” blades. Right?

What a wonderful saw.
I think your turning of the handles are fine too.
Best thoughts,

Thanks for looking all. The frame is hard maple and the turnings black walnut. I believe the blade is twelve inch and I got three of them with different toothing all from TFWW.
