The Saw Makers


Saw Making is a critically endangered craft, with Shane and Jaq Skelton the UK’s only bespoke saw makers, crafting perhaps the finest hand saws in the world. With a waiting list of up to a year, a long line of woodworkers and collectors wait impatiently for their prize. As Shane and Jaq struggle to keep the craft alive, this intimate film follows the making of their new Chippendale inspired saw, while illustrating the passion that woodwork and making can have to individuals as they battle life threatening illnesses.
