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
All of my saws are cut by hand using a plasma torch. I’ve been told I have a steady hand.
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 $60.
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.
On average, saws ship about a month from when they are ordered. I try to leave room in my schedule to accommodate some rush orders, but between October and Christmas, I get very busy – so please check first.
Yes – you can add either a short name or initials up to 4 characters (or a brand) for $20 to any saw, or add a longer name (up to 13 characters) on horizontal designs for $40. If you need something longer, please check with me first.
I spend a lot of time at flea markets and estate sales to hunt down my saws. I’ve shipped over 3000 saws, so I need to keep finding them! 😀 I also have a number of people who hunt them down for me as well.
The average handsaw is 24-29 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.
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.
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.
