SOLD the hatchet buzz saw! Went to a guy and his girl friend who are decorating a timber cabin up near Mt. Rainier. He says the timbers in the structure all have the characteristic curved buzz saw cut surfaces. They had another uncut blade they were deliberating over but the hatchets won them over. They also bought some other things I had made and commissioned another saw blade with art work so good deal all around. The blade with knife cutouts has gotten a few nibbles also but no serious interest. Some folks wanted to know if they can buy knife blanks but I have not cut any in a long time. If it weren't for the Wif and you folks, I'd probably have scraped those blades. Thanks All!
I had no doubt it would sell...just like my old boss at the truck dealership would say "there's a butt for every seat"
Thats great MC. That was an interesting piece.
A saw of a different color. Got this saw at a garage sale last week. I have seen some pieces where the lower window above the blade frames the scene. I made a try at it. I was inspired by Midwinter 's comment that a saw needed a scene of a man sawing firewood in it. The Wif likes it so I'll take what I can get! J. Dirt may recognize parts of the scene.
Its missing the FHC logo???
All kidding aside thats real nice. Is the design an original by you MC?
Yes all mine but the tree and wood pile elements I drew some time ago for another project. We can hang the FHC logo below the scene!
Congrats on your sales and the commissioned piece!
You cleaned up that old saw nicely and I really like the artwork!
Amazing work right there!!!!
I would be proud to hang that on my wall anytime.
Truely great work there MC.
Well I picked up a few new (old) saws. I had cut out 2 new handsaws and was running out of them (old hand saws) so I started looking and ran into these saws on Craig's List. The train scene is the 5th saw from the bottom. The scene lays flat against the wall and I clasped the saw in 3 hand hammered brackets so I didn't have to drill or weld to it. There are spacers so the saw is about 1/2 forward of the scene. This gives relief and keeps the thicker handle from just touching the wall. The engine is #66 and was a real locomotive for the A&L (Abernethy and Lougheed) logging Co. in BC about the turn of the century if my facts are correct. I was really pushing the envelope for small detail on the scene with my equipment!
Those are a thing a beauty. I love the intricate details. How much time is involved in the elaborate ones?
That is some nice work. You should be proud of them!
Thanks for sharing!
Easily ten hours of drawing for the logging scene but close to half of that time is adapting details for the small scale of the drawing. The first larger drawing took about 5 hours but once drawn can be copied at a touch of a button. Cleaning the saw, cutting the scene and assembly took about 3.5 hours but that was also figuring out how to do it (remember, I'm old and slow). It would go much quicker now. The fishing saw took a couple hours to draw and cut.
Outstanding work, brother.
I need to look around and see if I can find any old saws...
Very , very nice.
I love the one with the train on the top. Absolutely beautiful work!
You should be proud of your work and attention to detail.
My wife would find that tp holder funny. You do excellent work.
You do beautiful work.
Great work as usual Brother!
