Auckland

 

Went back to the big smoke to vist me ol' ma.

Had this idea fresh in my mind, just couldnt silence the voice in my head that said "make it...c'mon...maaaaake iiiitt"

So I made it. The yellow goopy looking stuff is wood glue. Picture should be pretty self explainatory. This thing rips through firewood like there's no tomorrow, and fits on the outside of your pack like a glove.

Blade cost 5 bucks from Mitre10 Mega

Wood cost about 10 bucks.

Make one!

Cheers Ian, those saws look very nice. Mine is a rough job for sure, but she works!
