I would like to make a bow saw for a 26.5” (675 mm) blade. Highland Woodworking sells the blades but I can’t find plans for this size saw. Found several plans for a twelve inch (305mm) but not sure how to scale it up.


Any experience out there?

Thanks for your help

figured id bring this up to. you can also get bowsaw blades by just cutting up the bandsaw blade. if you buy in coil and braze your own blade its very convenient
