I sometimes like to find uses for scrap pieces of wood from this hobby of ours other than for firewood.
So I put together this simple buck saw for out in the field. Not my idea lots of information about
building on the internet. Just a blade, 2 bolts, nuts, paracord and of course your wood. Make as
simple or fancy as you please. Comes apart very easily for storage in case your wife won't let you
hang it above the fireplace.

Great looking saw! If I made one like that my wife would probably steal it. She likes rustic and primitive stuff.

Your saw will just keep looking better with time and use.

Nice job on the saw. I use / keep one with the same blade but with the original bent metal bow in my vehicle with me all the time so I can harvest a good stick when I see it. I just may have to make a new frame, yours is much prettier!

Actually it collapsed under vigorous use so I think I need to reinforce with another centre piece and use day wood rather than green I suspect was a problem.

That's a shame. Most frame saws I've seen have a taller spreader board in the middle. It shouldn't be a difficult fix.

Sean, that is a very neat looking buck saw. If I were still able to get around and looking for sticks, I would definitely want to make one.
