"Cross Cut Saw"

Good morning everyone:

I know, it’s been a while, same old excuse, been busy! The project that I’m working on now is the replacement of the old wood stove. Jo and I were out and about a few weeks ago and ran across this little place out of town, (I guess you could call it out in the country), that sold wood burning stoves and fireplace inserts of several types. We were looking around and decided on this particular one, some places make it so hard to choose! So after we looked around, and after taking into consideration about just how it would look in our home, we finally made our choice! The old stove did a good job of heating but it was going through the firewood much too fast, and the blower went out on it just before spring, and all the parts on the new one were in good working order. So with studying all the information, we feel that it will be a lot more efficient and easier to regulate!
Well, I’m ashamed to say it, but I visited someone’s blog a couple of weeks ago and they were talking about buying a, “2 man saw”, which is more commonly known as a, “Cross Cut Saw”. Well, I told whomever she was that we have one hanging on our breakfast area wall along with another saw that I really don’t know the name of it. I told her that I would take a picture of it and post it and maybe someone would let me know the name of it.

I don’t know the name of this one…!

"Cross Cut Saw"

Also I would like to thank everyone for not giving up on me!
And I hope everyone has a great day…

Hi JD! It was me that you told you would post a picture. Grins, and hehe I am the perfect person to forget my name with. hehe, since fibromyalgia tends to make me be very forgetful! I am always forgetting this or that. I totally understand. Grins... The saws are gorgeous! Thank you for telling me about the cross cut saw name! I could not remember what it was called! laughing....I love how you and JO used to to frame artwork and your plants. Very clever! What a perfect idea. The other saw is so very beautiful also. My first thought was ohhhh wow i wish i could get my hands on a saw like that!

Glad you found the stove you were looking for. Hugsssss. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Blessings sent your way.

Like the saw, don't know what it is called. but was interested in the two prints on the wall with it. do you know who did them? Are they photos or paintings ? Wouldn't possibly be Eugene Bishoff by chance? I knew him when I was a little girl in the 50's and he did paintings of Indians of the Southwestern states. We were in Albuquerque, NM then.
