Bob, is that spike out of the log that you posted a picture of in the parbuckling thread  ???


Yes.  A 60", 240-year-old Pacific Madrone or Arbutus.  Wood similar to beech but heavier and harder.  A favorite of turners.





Here's what it looks like finished:

Is it me, or was this thread hijacked?   Looks like it came back on topic though.   

When I hear "There's no nails in those logs", my response is: "well then you shouldn't have any problem signing this contract that says you pay for blade damage will you?"

I like that little coping saw.  You could use that at the Sunday table to help cut up in-bone hams.  :)

Tom, just get yourself a used bandsaw blade and make yourself one. It could also be used as a bread knife. We made some in school over 20 years ago from shop band blades that broke. ;D

The article I wrote on making those improved coping saws is here, if the rules here allow the link:

Better blade tension than the storebought ones allows more accuracy and versatility.
