The Power of the Band Saw

No machine in the shop is more important than your band saw. It’s as simple as that if you build furniture. If you’re a cabinet maker, then you’ll pick your table saw or router. But for furniture, no machine can do all the jobs that a good band saw can do.

Notice I said good. A bad band saw is not worth the steel it was stamped out of. But a good one can rip lumber safely and with a smaller kerf. It can do joinery work, it obviously can cut curves and shapes all day long. It can also saw up logs, resaw lumber into veneer or laminations. It is as versatile a machine as we have.

Join us this Wednesday at 6pm for a lecture on setting up and tuning your band saw for use. It’s a must if you want to experience the joy that sawing with a band saw offers.
