This saw turned out awesome !!!
One final picture of gluing up the repairs.
I was just thinking… the wood I used to repair the tote was cut out of a plane almost exactly the same age as the saw being repaired.
I worried a lot about matching the finish, but you know what ?!
I think it looks absolutely awesome like this!!!
I still need to finish the chip carving. I am so excited about the way it turned out!!
The old beech wood is a really nice contrast to the apple wood.
By the way, it cuts through wood like butter :)
Apple is such a beautiful wood!
Too bad it is so hard to find.
This is what I started with about two weeks ago…
