I received a letter from Jarrett in California this week and wanted to share it with you. Jarrett just finished making a Frame Saw, following plans from my book, The Unplugged Woodshop. He used maple for the frame, and came up with a clever design due to the fact that he didn’t have enough material.

Great job Jarrett! Thanks again for sharing this with us~

A Frame Saw in Souther, California



I finished the frame saw from your plans last month.  I used soft maple left over from my bench build for the frame.  Since I didn’t have a large enough piece of wood for the handle, I made what I had work by going with a more traditional design.  After using the saw I will probably soften the handles a bit, but it is pretty comfortable as is.  If I don’t like the handle, I can always replace it down the road.  It was a fun and simple project.  The saw works really well.  Thank you for the design.
