Since I’m tackling curves in the second semester of The Hand Tool School, I thought an episode on building a bowsaw would be appropriate. I’m using the Gramercy bowsaw kit as a starting point. This is great weekend project that can be done with a mixture of hand and power tools. It is a great opportunity to practice hand cut mortise and tenons since the joinery is simple and small. It is also a perfect opportunity to use my favorite tool, the spokeshave!
