    If you want to be more effective and safer when using the three main bandsaws in the Wood Studio, this class is for you.

    About this Class

    A bandsaw seems like a simple machine, but to get the best results, one must understand the types of blades, the guides that support the blade, the size and power of the saw, and how the teeth cut wood. Some cuts — such as resawing, cutting curves and beveling — require special techniques. All bandsaws need to be tuned regularly, and with the heavy use in our studio, often more than once per week.

    Learn the mechanics of the saw and blades, and how to evaluate the saw’s readiness for your stock. Learn how to change the blade when you need a different one for your project, including how to set the guides that support the cut. Also, learn how to determine when stock requires special handling for safety, and how to use shims or other support for stabilization.

    You also learn about cuts of various kinds, including circles, tight shapes that require relief cuts and duplicate cuts best done with templates, plus the essentials for resawing stock.

    Students are encouraged to ask questions relevant to their own project interests, and share any problems using bandsaws.

    Learn techniques and strategies to help you custom mill wood. In fine woodworking, everything starts with the wood. Before you can focus on joinery or fancy details, you need to make a board foursquare, with surfaces that are flat, straight, parallel, and square. And then you need to cut the lengths, widths, and thicknesses you need, in a way that positions the pieces where the grain direction makes the most sense.

    About this Class

    In this class, you learn how to custom mill wood to the precise dimensions you need, including:

    • Why wood cups, twists, and bows, and what to pay attention to when you are selecting the wood,
    • How to use the jointer, planer, and table saw to get a board to the point where it can be used in furniture making,
    • How to read a board when you are laying out parts, so that you use the wood efficiently and wind up with grain directions that are pleasing to the eye, functional, and structurally sound.
