Carpenters Fellowship auction saw.

The Carpenters Fellowship held their annual event, "Frame" at St Fagans museum near Cardiff on the 2-4th Sept. Every year an auction is held to raise money for training inititives within the fellowship.

The Carpenters' Fellowships main aim is promoting communication, training and sharing of knowledge amongst those interested in historic and contemporary timber framed structures. We hold talks lectures and demonstrations over the entire weekend.


I made a saw this year for the auction, with the winning bidder getting the choice of any tooth configuragtion to be cut with me in my saw workshop. The auction was a great success rasining around £7000 for the Fellowship. In the end my saw sold to  American TFG member Grigg Mullen for £170. The saw will now be going across the pond to it's new home.

The saw is 28 1/2" long with a tapper ground back ready for the prefered tooth pattern. Grigg is actually wanting two saws, so I'm going to be making him another saw as a cross cut match to the auction saw.

  1. What a gorgeous creation. The tote alone is a work of art. Nice work!

  2. Grigg would have a saw as nice as that! I worked with him at a TF Guild event in July here in the States, he has a nice collection of some fine tools. I'm sure this beauty will fit right in!
