12” turning saw, blade and brass blade pegs are from Gramercey. I made this out of European Beech. I put a piece of plastic tubing on the blade to protect the teeth and my skin.

Doesen’t make it hard to cut with?:-) :-)

Love the details, do you relieve tension when not in use?

I split the piece of plastic tubing so it snaps over the blade, i also store my extra blades this way. I also forgot to mention that the handles are turned from walnut. You will notice tool marks on the saw, i believe a tool made by hand should show a few marks after all it is just a tool.

Nice work! I particularly like that you have made radiuses at the ends of the crossbar, and its intersection points on the frame. This makes the saw more stable in use. I also note you have ‘eased’ (rounded over) all the edges which makes any tool more pleasant to use, and has less risk of damaging your work. I highly approve!

Very nice craftsmanship.

That is a stunning saw. I have been thinking about building one of these, but you give me pause—the bar is et too high!
