this is going to be my attempt to make a bow saw for a bush class we're on bushcraft USA I'm just using my trailblazer stuff taking down the sapling this is a Nash sapling we've got that ash borer really bad here so I don't feel too bad about taking it because it's going to die anyways plus there's a ton of saplings and not that big a deal going we have flexible piece preferably not going to break I'll maybe I'll start about right here go on buddy cut it around there okay okay cut it into sighs I believe this is going to work now I've got to cut the notch in here and on this side I'm going to use this i'm not going to show you because my mind is going to take a while I'll be right back all right i got that notch cut I'm not a notch cut wasn't as hard as I thought it'd take as long now hopefully like that's how it looks now hopefully I can bend it in without if splitting on me takes a little bit of finesse I think croton you made this look so easy buddy alright she's in there go on scope this is frustrating

I remember trying to do this once before a few years ago and couldn't get it for the life of me well she's snapping come on almost there yes okay it's a little bitty saw this is that saw we just made this is bigger than my forearm four inches across three inches across maybe lunch Go Go move this tree is falling I found some nice dry pieces of ass here these two here they're not the biggest in thickness but they're really dry and it's good wood to burn so I'm going to clean this up a little bit so I can make a saw table you know it's not necessary but I want to show the saw in action so this piece is big big around anyway okay now that's bigger around on the pieces i'm using for firewood so i just wanted to show it that this little sock and can handle that diameter of that
