Got tired of a plastic handle on my backsaw. Just an old cheapo from WAY back. Stanley sold them for a miter box they put out.
So, I used some wide , Old Oak I had in the shop. Roughed out a blank:
And, a second one, just in case someone messed up the first
Drilled out for my fat fingers with a couple forstner bits, and started to shape and sand things down. Drilled out for two sawnuts, used a “Toolbox” saw to make a kerf for the blade. A small chisel cut the groove for the saw’s back.
Sawnuts came from the Toolbox saw.
That’s enough for one night, I ran out of Mountain Dew in the shop anyway. Until next time….
