The Bow Saw Competition

As I pointed out in my last update I have entered a bow saw building competition over at BCUK. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up a blade and some bits this weekend. I've got till the end of January to build it but I need to come up with some good ideas.
There is some nice info at this site but you have to search under Bowsaw, Bucksaw and Frame Saw. It probably has a few other names too. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

I like the looks of such saws, but to win the competition don't you think something more original is called for?

Or maybe ornamenting it heavily (I can see some dragonheads to be carved on the top there), making it super large or small sized?

An idea: How about making a bow saw that looks like a bow (for archery)? Should be easy and could easily be made to look quite original.
