Happy customer - Finished in Finland - with a thumb hole.

Well the saw plates arrived in Finland last week, and it looks like Tristan couldn't wait to get on to making the handles.

I sent him some American Black Walnut along with the saw blades, and he's now finished the handle on the 29" rip saw. For a first attempt at a handle I think he should be very proud, it's come out a treat.

He's also used furniture nuts and threaded bar to fix the handle on, and I think this give a very contemporary look that contrasts well with the old school influences on the handle.

Well done Tristan, and I'm glad your pleased with the saws.


  1. Utterly gorgeous, nice work all around!

  2. Great! Where could I buy steel plate (750 x 225 x 1mm) ?

  3. If you need to get a power saw for your workshop at home, or for your business, you need to do your homework. You can't just waltz into a power tool shop and expect to be able to pick something out easily. This is because there are many types of saws available out there, and the different categories and products offer all sorts of benefits, advantages and disadvantages that you need to be aware of. Of course, you could just ask the salesperson questions, but it's still better to have your own stock knowledge. That way, you're in a better position to make an informed decision and judgment.

  4. Thanks for the outstanding advice, it really is useful.
