Crosscut Saw

Mid Nov. 2009

Time to Carve: .5 hours
Metal work: 1.5
Finishing: 2 hours

One of the things I enjoy about making these slides is the many different methods used to create wonderful projects. This is one of those projects that I am just amazed with the simple methods used to make what looks like a complex slide. The log was simple... just a branch that fell off a maple tree in my hard. Drilled a 3/4 hole for the neckerchief and saw halfway through the log. The saw was made from some tin and the teeth were filed with a triangle shaped file then every other tooth was cut with a hacksaw. The handles were made using 1/8 dowels cut with a slit to accommodate the tin.
