This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in round wood woodworking.

This BB is the building of a bow saw.

This is a thin blade held at tension by a pair of vertical frame bars and horizontal cross beam and kept at tension by means of a cord or other tension device. These can be packed in lightly (just the blade) to remote locations and then assembled from local wood once there.





To get certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:

- Your chunks of wood and the blade that you are starting with
- Progress about halfway through, not yet assembled, with the hand tools you have decided to use for this
- Final product fully assembled
