FAQ – Contemporary Series

With the introduction of my new ‘Contemporary Series’ of saws, you might have some questions.

Here are some quick answers to some of the common questions people ask me. If you would like to contact me, email is usually the best way – Cindy@theSawLady.com

Are these “old saws” or something different?

The Contemporary Series is a new line of metal art which does not use actual saws. I have the ‘blades’ cut by a small local company of out of sheet metal and the handles are made by a smaller, different company using modern equipment. I then treat the blades the blades and handles to give them a unique, rustic look.

How long will my order take?

As of May 2022, I have a large number of Contemporary Series saws on hand, and if they are listed as “in stock”, they will ship in 2 business days. If they are on back order, they should ship in about 3 to 4 weeks.

Can I add a name to a saw?

Currently, I am not set up for production in the Contemporary Series to be able to add names. I hope to provide this option in the future. For now, any saw requiring a name will need to be a custom order on a hand cut vintage saw.

How big are the saws, and how do I hang them?

The average Contemporary Series saw is 30 inches long and about 6 inches tall. They can be hung with two nails – one on the handle end, and the other for the hole I put at the end of the saw blade. Vertical Saws can be hung using a hook I’ve welded to the back of the saw.

Do you ship to ______________ ?

I ship my saws around the world. I love to hear from people across the globe who are interested in my work. Shipping outside of the USA ranges from $40 to $70.

Yes, I do a LOT of custom saws. I can make changes to standard designs or come up with something completely unique to tell your story! Here are some samples. I can work from photos you send or just general ideas. I have over 40 years of design experience to draw on.

Can I send you my saw to work on?

Yes! I have people send me their ‘family’ saws that Dad or Grandpa used. You can mail them to me for standard designs or custom work.

Do you do other types of artwork?

Yes – I work in a lot of different media, from painting to glass to wood carving and many in between. I am also internationally known for my pencil lead carvings. Visit CindyChinn.com to view my full portfolio.
