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.
