I never understood what the heck was meant by a “Man Crush” until I ran across Mattias Wandel’s website: www.woodgears.ca. This guy is amazing!
Anyone who can build his own Wooden bandsaw would be amazing just for that. But he is always putting something new up on his web site, and he explains things using well produced videos and photos.
The thing I really want to try my hand at eventually is making gears out of wood . I bought his gear template generator program just to better my understanding of how gears work.
Like Norm Abram, this guy does amazing work and shows how you can do it to.
I have made his website a regular read. Maybe I’ll build my self a bandsaw. If I can get to the point where I can make square cuts, that is.
