These are some of the different pictures I've done using the old bucksaws. I cut a piece of masonite to fit in the back of the old saw and paint my picture on that. I take the saw apart and clean it up. then maybe some stain and polyurathane. I wirebrush the top piece that holds it together, then tack the finished picture in the back. $125.00

This is an example of kohlrosing, an ancient Norwegian art. In a piece of wood you make cuts and where you want it darker, make them closer together and criss-cross the lines. Then you grind coffee grounds very fine and rub in the cuts. Sand it off and apply mineral oil. We did this today in carving class and I posted this for Bill to see.
