Saw: Done!

My handle for the patternmaker's saw is now done. It looks awesome, and fits my hand perfectly. It also cuts pretty well, but because of its length and weight(very light), it won't be replacing my dovetail saw. To tighten the split-nuts, I fashioned a screwdriver out of a washer, and fit it to the nuts. Maybe later I will take some more glamorous pictures.
When looking at my workbench design, I realized that my plan isn't really like the roubo bench that Christopher Schwarz popularized in his book Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use as mine will lack the leg vise, and the crochet. So from now on I will refer to my design as "The Bench".
