    Dovetail saw kit

    About half a year ago I purchased a Gramercy dovetail saw kit, but it wasn't until three days before now that I decided to assemble and make the handle for it.

    Sorry, the thread is sparse in pics.
    The handle roughly cut

    I didn't sand the sides to the bolts because I made it a bit thicker than suggested on the instructions and the bolts are not thought to accept that difference so I had to sink them in further.

    The wood is mongoy, a scrap from the seven drawer dresser project that Larry will kill me if I don't post it soon.

    The handle is quite comfortable to use but I think I will tweak it a bit or make another one.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Thanks Bob.

    The wood is Mongoy, Amazakoué, Ovengkol. Latin name: Guibourtia ehie hope this helps.

    A nightmare to work with, criscroosed grain and tendency to tear off a lot.
    I don't think I will use it again for any other furniture piece.
    Besides when you cut or sand it, smells like cat urine.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Nice Toni. Have you cut some DTs with it yet? What's your opinion of the saw itself?

    Sweet saw Toni looks like you took some notes when we visited Wenzloff & Sons saws
