Make awesome D.I.Y. projects with saw blades!
Here are some ideas:
- For Painting. Yes, that’s right. You can use an old saw blade for painting, just like what MyndScapes artist Daniel Thomson has done – as featured on ViralNova’s article – way back in 2015. He has painted stunning illustrations of a lush forest, a picturesque riverside, and a calm ocean on old saw blades – specifically on old power saw or long saw blades.
Check out SawingPros’ Scroll saw guide for more info on other kinds of saws.
- For Tools. Despite being old, saw blades have edges. Why not make better use of these and turning it into pocket knives of your own or any other sharp tools for other building and recreating purposes? All you need to do is cut a portion of the saw blade (outlined into a knife) and insert the cut knife outline into a wood handle.
- For Hanging. Be it a plant or a bulb, you can use an old saw blade to make a hanging surface for these. All you need to do is attach nylon wires on the sides of the blade, pull the strings together in an upwards motion, tie the strings, hang it somewhere it won’t sway much, and voila – you’ve got your own hanging surface for plants and bulbs.
- For Other Decorations. This includes making old saw blades into placemats on the dinner table, cup mats, plant holder, candle holder, wall clock, mirror, and more! Indeed, there are lots of things you can do with old saw blades. Aside from those already mentioned, you can also use it to decorate your vehicles as a tire plate or a bike plate.
In conclusion, saw blades can truly be more than just tools for cutting down trees or pieces of wood to make wood products. Time and again, saws have proven that they are not just useful as household tools, but also for showcasing creativity in art and other aspects of designing. Aside from that, especially antique ones, old saw blades exude a little radiance. It’s not just about being reused or used to create an entirely new thing. It’s also about the history that saw blade has gone through, all for those like us who consider just about anything in life instruments of art.
So, what are you waiting for? Make your own awesome D.I.Y. projects with saw blades and you’ll never have to worry about not having cool things like those I’ve mentioned above.
Cheers to saw blades, old or new, and creative people like us!
