First things first. I would like to thank every one that has desired and orderd one of my saws. It is very flattering as well as humbling. It pleases me greatly, my saw designs have been met with such acceptance. The down side is that I am not able to keep up with the custom orders and unfortunately find myself not being able to accept new orders from time to time.
If you are looking for a saw just exactly like your neighbors, you are out of luck. Sorry . There are no nifty CNC machines, or magic duplicating machines in my little shop. I don't make production saws. Just me in my overcrowded little shop. I won't tell you my saws are the latest or the greatest. I will just let the saws speak for themselves. Each and every saw spine, and handle is shaped by me. And yes, every tooth on the saw is sharpened by me for you by hand. So nobody to blame for imperfections except me. These are saws designed for the dicerning craftsman who desires more than just another production saw or just another copy of a vintage saw. No two saws are ever exactly alike. Made from some of the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods available and custom fit to your hand. Every saw is your saw.
Traditional saw plate or shaped.
My saw plates tend to be a little longer than the stated size due to the shaping. But if you prefer a rectangular saw plate, for that "traditional" look, I can do that too. No extra charge. Just let me know.
If you are interested in one of my saws, feel free to view some of the saws I have made for myself and others. I will post more as I have time. I don't have a fancy photo booth either, by the way. A pretty picture does not a good saw make. So my back yard will have to do. :)
I do not take down payments on saws that are not built. You pay when the saw is made. End of story. You are free to cancle at anytime. I will send you an invoice for the saw when it is finished. You may pay with pay pal via the invoice or you may send a check or money order. But the saw doesn't ship until the check clears. :) Prices are subject to change. But once you order a saw, it stays that price. Any saw that is not paid for 30 days after it is invoiced will be sold to some one else.

For those of you that have been wondering; No, I did not fall off the end of the earth. It has just been a bit eclectic these past few months. Not to mention life's domino effect. Truly a "how I did not want to spend my summer vacation" . '
So to those that have been patiently waiting, Thank you. It has not gone unnoticed.
15 Aug. : Finally, fingers are healing. I always knew I depended on the feeling in my finger tips for woodworking, BUT GEEZ! They have been some tender little guys indeed and I a big panzy. I still have to wear gloves and bandaids to some extent, major pain, but at least I can start doing something saw related. Word of the day: Wear gloves when cleaning the underside of you lawn mower.
As I begin to plow forward, AGAIN, I will be picking up where I left off with some slight changes. Joinery saws will receive first priority, of course, but in between I will be making a few carbide burnishers, and mallets as needed. The redesigned Gent saws, three sizes, are still in the works with the slightly longer handles currently being turned in various exotic woods as well as infused wood. Ultimately I will have three different lengths. 5.25", 6.5", ad 9"long for those that prefer longer handles.
In the mean time, I am holding off taking any custom orders to avoid any further back log delays. I am currently at about 8 months. And I thought I was going to catch up this summer. HA! What's that saying? "All the best laid plans".
Sorry I will not make it to WIA as a vendor, once again, but I hope everyone that goes has a great time and brings home lots of toys///er uh wood working tools. Maybe if I am lucky I will be able to slide out of here for a couple of days. HMMMM. We'll see.
Best wishes to all.
So, taking care of some saw plates and loose ends in general. Then back to working on saws in a couple of days. ( FINALLY )
