Saw

A small thin saw, with a back to strengthen it, to cut furniture with. I would have the blade much narrower than it generally is so broad only as to cut fairly through the furniture, before the back stops it from cutting deeper by resting on the saw block; it would then prevent the saw block from being cut so much as it generally is in a careless manner, sometimes even through at the front, till the saw comes in contact with the stone, and is spoiled.
