    Ebony handled saw

    Hi Y'all,

    Here's a look at a saw I recently completed. Gabon Ebony. 8" 16 ppi blade. First time using Ebony for a handle which presented a challenge or two.

    It was filed specifically for sawing 8-10 mm drawer sides and so needed smoothness over speed--still cuts pretty quickly though.





    Take care, Mike

    I love when you when you put pics of your saws up! They are all works of art, but that ebony is really spectacular!

    Thanks!

    W-O-W just does not do it justice

    I too love it when you post these, nice to know fine tools like these are still being made!

    Hey, what can I say Mike, 16 points to an 8" blade works fine for a lot of stuff.

    Nice looking wood!
