This saw was made from a small bing cherry tree that died. The size of the saw was determined by the length of straight members that I could salvage from the tree. All of the wood and metal work was performed using hand tools (except blade, nuts and washers). No sandpaper was used. The blade is a 26 inch length of a Starrett inch wide, 3 tpi, hook tooth bandsaw blade.
