I made these frames
a few, OK, eight years ago, and thought it was time to resurrect the project. I still think it is one of the cutest things I ever "saw." I cut this saw out of 1" pine, sanded, painted, and floated it. It was designed to rest on the raw wood stand (unpainted so it looks like a saw cutting through a fresh plank of lumber). Can't you just smell the sawdust!?!
My husband had a smallish desk at work, so I put two eyelets in the top and hung it with a piece of jute. I am planning on doing this project with some ladies from church and just thought you might be interested.
I finally knocked-off the procrastination and put some things on my "newborn baby" of an etsy site, and this kit, as well as a few finished frames are available there. You too can be the proud owner of a "Best Dad I Ever Saw" frame!!!!
Don't want to buy a kit? Try cutting a saw shape out of cardboard, like a cereal box or something. If you cut two or three, then glue them together like a sandwich, you will have a nice sturdy frame. Modge Podge "manly" paper, or paint like I painted mine. Don't forget to email with any questions!
