Slide of the Month - Camp Saw

November 2018

Time to make: 1 hour

Original design: Bill Andrews

Source : Boys Life Slide of the Month Sept. 1988 page 62

A neat little slide in between other projects. The handle of the saw is a piece of aluminum hanger wire or fence wire that I bend to shape and cut a slot into the ends of the wire. The blade is from a broken scroll saw blade I broke on an earlier project and it was glued in place with some super glue. The tensioning handle is made out of a piece of aluminum flashing and is painted black. The log is a stick from the backyard with a 3/4 " hole drilled through it for the neckerchief. I slot is cut into the front for the saw and it is glued into place with super glue. A couple of coats of Poly finishes it off.
