I have always been involved with building things but have recently turned my focus towards building furniture and want to take a shot at building a rocking chair like Scott Morrisons “Simple Rocking Chair” plus this gives me an excuse for buying another tool which I probably need like a hole in the head but hey… Ive got a problem but so do most of us on this forum. The one tool that I dont have and have been looking at purchasing is a bandsaw but am not sure what features are really required for the type of work I will be doing. I dont see myself resawing a whole bunch but might on the occasion. I plan on mostly using the bandsaw for cutting curved shapes and freeform pieces. Any input on pros and cons or just words of wisdom to keep in mind while looking for one would be greatly appreciated. I want to stay preferably under $800 but could go to $1000 if it were a huge upgrade in benefical features for my application. Thanks again!
