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

    Would you be interested in attending a workshop where you build a frame saw? Below are some pictures if you aren't familiar with what a frame saw is. I am just trying to gauge overall interest, this is not a thread to start a list for people signing up. The workshop would most likely be held in Liberty, NC. The materials for this workshop do have an expense associated with them, so keep that in mind. I don't have exact numbers, but something in the $200 range can be used as a rough estimate at this point, for the purposes of gauging interest level. This would be a one day workshop.

    Who is interested?

    Ths new one thats shown - looks like they were made more for show than work. I couldn't imagine my hands would be comfortable grasping the scrolled ends. Nor do they look like they've seen any work at all. Are you looking at building a working version or a looking version?

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

    Sorry I haven't chimed in sooner, it's been a busy few days. The Blackburn tools is the more economical of the hardware kits available, the species and type of wood is really up to the maker, Hickory, White Oak, Walnut, Ash, Poplar, in an eight quarter are all exceptable choices. The width of the frame I recommend it be built to fit the user, I built mine to fit my shoulder width.

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

    To answer CrealBillys question they are working versions, mine I built with handles but I have used one that was older than any we have seen around built like the pics and it was not uncomfortable to use. This piece was found at an antique fair and I wanted to purchase the thing but the owner had the It ain't for sale price out and we couldn't come to terms. That being said what I have built while rite pretty to look at ain't just a pretty face it can throw down anytime you wanna go.

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

    I've reopened this thread after it expired with no comments for 30 days. There seems to be renewed interest in the project and I wanted to give others a chance to respond if they are interested.

    I think we should try to schedule a date and place and set the rules (cost, materials needed, etc) and see if enough sign up to make it viable. The more nebulous the question (are you interested?) the less likely anyone is to commit. Just the way I see things work around here. Schedule it and they will come.

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

    I'm good to walk folks through this with what I have done around Feb 18th provided we have a place to do it, Bill had stated he was willing to host. If that's still good with everyone I can put it on the calender

    If that's to soon or not good I would entertain other dates!

    2/18 is good for me to host.
    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.
