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.

I am considering offering a saw making class this May or June. It will be limited to 6 students. I have a small shop and this will allow me to monitor more closely each persons progress. It will most likely be a 2 and possibly 3 day class to incorporate saw sharpening as well. I will supply the saw blanks, tiger maple, beech, etc., saw files to sharpen the teeth and lunch. It will be warm enough, I hope, to sit on the deck at lunch time and enjoy the blooming hostas, various asian lillys, etc., as we dine on perhaps barbecue burgers and such, during the break. Still trying to persuade my boss into tending the Weber grill. :)
So if you are close and are interested, just drop me an email and I will try to keep you updated on the status.
As always, to those that have continued to desire one of my saws, thank you so much for your continued support and patronage. It does indeed mean a lot.
Best wishes to all.
