I received a letter from Gerhard two weeks ago and finally have a chance to share it with you.
Gerhard made a beautiful frame saw, following plans in my book, The Unplugged Woodshop.
He documented the process on his blog but I wanted to share a few pics here with you.
Thanks again for the links Gerhard,
your frame saw looks amazing!
I hope you get many years of use from it.
All the best~
Dear TomMy name is Gerhard Marx. I am a hobbyist woodworker on weekends and a Psychiatrist during the week. I have been blogging about my journey since 2013. Living in Namibia creates all sorts of challenges for a woodworker, but it actually helped me to discover hand tool work. I finished a frame saw that was inspired by your work on the weekend and thought I should send you some links to the posts.
I really enjoy your blog, ethics and excellent craftsmanship. I hope my attempt does not drag your name through the mud.Thanks for your time and inspiration.Kind regardsGerhard
