    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!

    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.

    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!

    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?

    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.
    Thanks Mike.
