I have put out an introduction to bandsaws video to help people who might seriously consider using a bandsaw. The reason is probably obvious but I have used one for five decades now and feel that owning will be helpful to others for a variety of reasons.
I know it’s often said that I don’t use power equipment. I am never sure where it came from but assume it’s because 99% of my work and my teaching and training others via online does come from hand tools and not power equipment. I doubt that I will ever rely on things like tablesaws and thickness planers, surface planers and mortise machines even though I have owned them and used them for the same 50 years. Developing skill means you have a clear options. I prefer to keep myself fit in training my body through self disciplines and the discipline of handwork. That way I avoid the gym, which in my case so far has only produced muscle I have not found useful in my work and I avoid the invasiveness of noise and air polluting in my workshop. It’s a total sense thing.
We have put this together and will be releasing additional bandsaw videos from time to time to help our fellow enthusiasts find the balance between the bandsaw and the hand tool world they so love. I hope that you will enjoy this complementary direction and also that you will subscribe to my YouTube channel as this has become very much a way of reaching and teaching woodworkers on the journey to better woodworking all around the world.
