I have been woodworking casually since my teenage years when my uncle lent me his table saw. Gradually I built up my confidence and skills, and over the past 30 years have mostly used those skills to do home remodeling in my spare time. Recently I have taken a renewed interest in woodworking, and would like to learn more advanced techniques and achieve some more depth of skills.

My workshop is in my garage. My favorite tool is a 14-inch band saw. I have been making band saw boxes since May, 2009.

I am a founding member of the Woodworkers of NW Bradenton. Follow the link on this page to see our club site on FaceBook.

Hello Art, I’ve just been looking at your bandsaw boxes and they are beautiful. I purchased a 9” Ryobi bandsaw about 7 months ago with the intent of making bandsaw boxes, but two problems: 1) the bandsaw was too small for what I really wanted to do, and 2) blade drift was a huge problem.. no matter what I did, cutting thicker pieces of wood was always a disaster. So I ended up selling it on Craigslist and hope that one day I can buy a reliable 14” bandsaw. Your gorgeous projects make me jealous. lol. Keep up the good work.

Art,

Excellent photo layout!

I know it would be cheating, but with Lam’s it could be done with no surface glue lines. More loboa intensive too!
