« Part 202: The Right Shape Part 203 of Extremely Average series Part 204: Not to Worry »

Hello All,

I am starting a new tiny box. I decided to use Jeff the bandsaw to make my initial cuts. I learned a bunch about how to calibrate the table and get a good cut. All in all, it was a great day in the shop. I love my new bandsaw. Thanks everyone who suggested it as being a good choice for my next major tool purchase.

My post tonight is done, despite the power outages trying to stop me! Ha! I got it up anyway. :-)

it´s great to see you have alot of fun in the shop :-)

just put that planer so high on the wish-list yet :-)
with those smal peices it wouldn´t help anyway
I would surgest a lowangle blockplane with adjustble mouth instead

and now Jeff need a new line up of the table

take care

I agree that a planer wouldn’t work with the small pieces, but I would simply adjust my work plans to get the wood planed before I cut it into small pieces. Though I do agree that a low angle block plane is on the list too.
