I also build many of my saws themselves.
I introduce you to my big frame saw. The blade itself is also filed. It is for ripping and has 2.5 dpi. The blade has 80 teeth and the files took about 7 hours. My starting material was an old saw blade of a whipsaw and some pieces of the tree of ash.
At the end of a few pictures of a small frame saw for cross-sections and has 10 dpi.
Greetings Uwe

The whipsaw I have divided.

For this wood I built the frame.

Cutting of parts with hand tools.

Recording the distance of the saw teeth. Filing begin with.

ready saw

Restrict the saw blade can be seen in the video.
In the video, the saw from minute 23 to see it in action.

A few pictures of the small saw.

Very nice! I like the non-traditional handle on the bow saw. Make it your own.

Excellent work! These are a couple of tools that you will enjoy using and passing on to future woodworkers.
