    Outcome of the Frame Saw Workshop

    I finished my frame saw from the recent workshop this weekend. I also made a kerfing plane with an adjustable fence. Both of these saw kits were from Bad Axe Tools works and the plans were from Tom Fidgen's Book "The Unplugged Woodshop". I used this combination for a quick experimental cut this evening and I am very happy with the results. I was able to complete this 3/16" thick up in less than 10 minutes and that includes fighting against my crappy bench vice and light work bench. The Kerfing plane worked great and the frame saw tracked perfectly down the kerf. While I don't plan on using these tools on a regular basis I think they are great projects and were a lot of fun to build. With a solid workbench completing cuts like this really isn't even that physically demanding. The frame saw will really chew through some wood when you get it going with a full stroke. I think I will probably end up redoing the kerfing plane to make the handle more comfortable, the fence posts also aren't perfectly straight making it hard to adjust.

    Re: Outcome of the Frame Saw Workshop

    Wow that is an AWESOME hand resaw, great job. Even after doing a considerable amount of resawing with a ryoba, I typically lose ~1/8" thickness on a 10" board... really nice you got such great results on the first try. I should look into this method.

    Chase, they turn out really great. Thanks for sharing.
    Nothing beats a try but a failure, failure is an opportunity to learn.

    That looks great Chase! I got mine sharpened this weekend and made a very successful re-saw that I used on a tool box project. I am doing some carving in my handles and the back rail. I will post a picture if i ever get it completed.

    Those are some great tools Chase, bound to become family heirlooms!
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    Re: Outcome of the Frame Saw Workshop

    Great job Chase. Always good to see the finished project from a 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.
