I made this saw to help with resawing wood. It is very good at rip cutting and other long cuts. The frame is made from Hard Maple. And the blade is cut from a 5tpi bandsaw blade. The saw is 31" long by 23" wide. The blade is 27" long with 9" clearance on either side.
This bow saw is very handy for cutting shapes and other general uses. The frame is made with Hard Maple and the handles and tab are made out of Rosewood.
