Bow saws are convenient tools
for greenwood work as they
are relatively cheap and blades are available with "raker" teeth to
cut wet wood.
suffer from a couple of limitations.
Firstly, most metal frames do
not tighten the blade
sufficiently so the blade wanders and larger cuts are not straight.
saws are quite awkward to carry as they
don't fit easily into a backpack.
On this course you
will learn to make a simple frame saw
from cleft ash.
These are effective saws
which are nice to use and easy
