There are few woodworking tools more useful than a band saw – you can crosscut, rip, miter, making straight cuts or curved in thin stock as well as thick. As Nick explores its versatility, he explains how to align the saw, adjust it, and pick a blade. He demonstrates essential techniques, cutting freehand or with a guide, then shows special operations such as compound curves and band saw joinery. Along the way, there are useful tips and as plans for band saw jigs such as a table extension and resaw fence. Four project plans show how you might use your band saw: a Noah’s Ark, Queen Anne Side Table, Nesting Boxes, and a unique Chess Set. 128 pages, over 200 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
