    I'm scheduled to be on-call for work. I'll have to check to see if I can get someone to cover for me.

    Re: Interest in a "Build Your Own Frame Saw" Workshop?

    Michael, I hope you can. As promised hardware and blade sources http://blackburntools.com/ or http://www.badaxetoolworks.com/. Woods that can be used are any hardwood that can stand the stress of the blade tension and sawing. I used Cherry but maple, oak, walnut, hickory, ash, poplar all can be used. Finished dimensions for the stock are 1 5/8" x 1 3/8". One thing to note if anyone uses the info from the book of Tom Fidgen the length of the rails are missprinted and are to short (school of hard knocks). I'm going to layout the plans for the Black Burn tools today and check the math. At first glance today they look good. The width of the saw is based on the width of the users shoulders so what's comfortable for me may not be for you. For the record I used only hand tools to build the one I have, you can choose to handle your build anyway you want I'll coach you on any process you choose and I hope learn from y'all as well.

    Here's a video I just happened to see today. It's not exactly what I believe is the plan, but it's a decent video...

    Re: Interest in a "Build Your Own Frame Saw" Workshop?

    Good question, and depends a lot on how you want to build it. So I'll assume hand tools, and I'm bring the set I used to build mine as well. Saws, for breaking down stock 1 cross cut 1 rip, for jointery 2 -12inch back saws 1 cross cut 1 rip, a coping saw. Hand planes, #5, #7, #4, block plane, router plane, spoke shave. Drilling, a bit brace with 1/4" auger bit, an egg beater drill with a 3/32" drill bit. Chisels, 1/4", 1/2", 1". Rasps files and a card scraper will come in handy. Marking and measuring, a ruler and tape measure, a square, a marking gauge, a mortise gauge, a marking knife, a bevel square or gauge, and a pencil. Other tools are saw benchs, bench hooks, and a shooting board. I hope I didn't forgot anything, I think Bill said he had the kitchen sink down there already. I do hope this helps and I look forward to this project.

    Re: Interest in a "Build Your Own Frame Saw" Workshop?

    I will probably do a bit with power tools if possible. I am not really proficient enough with hand tools yet to do this project well, but I will also take it as a learning experiance. I will square up my stock and do some prep work prior to the class to save some time..

    Re: Interest in a "Build Your Own Frame Saw" Workshop?

    That's fine, as I was writing the list I started thinking that this is a lot . However, this is what was used to build the one I have and was the only choice I had in producing this tool. I learned a lot while doing this, as a mater of fact I learn something from every project everyday and it's joy to do so.

    All the tools in my shop will be available for use during the workshop.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Re: Interest in a "Build Your Own Frame Saw" Workshop?

    I thought I had posted in this thread already that I won't be there. There is also a scroll saw workshop scheduled for the same day. I'm going to that one. So please remove my name from the list. Thanks!
