Dovetail backsaw (version 2)


Stewie has just finished this dt backsaw, the same of previous post but made whit a different wood. Enjoy it!



Well this one is of the same design but I have used Makore as the handle wood. I have included some end grain photo's of the handle so you get a better idea of the amount of work that goes into achieving a quality finish. That also goes with the shaping of the bevels on the brass hardback. It takes a lot of time to do this by hand and I sometimes curse the extra effort required, but it does add that extra flair to the final look of the saw.
