Here’s another small project happening amidst all the “real work” that needs to get done during this quarantine.
24 inch frame saw made from Missouri grown walnut. The “hanged man” style flapper is a scrap of mahogany from some repurposed shelves. The sheath here is pine.
I seem to sell or occasionally give away the saws I make. I needed a new one. The last one went into the Winter Count raffle as the prizes were looking a little scant this year.
I went into the workshop without much of a specific plan but came out with this little gem. Just a matter of removing the unnecessary bits really.
Finally, the pin sheath is stained and a canvas quiver is made to cover the saw when broken down for travel. This one is from old,, heavyweight canvas salvaged from a truck tarp. It will all fit into a neat 24 inch bundle.
I want to keep this one but after inquiries rolling in, it may go into the shop (or another just like it).
