Christmas came a little early at my house this year. My wife has heard me make several comments lately about how much I “needed” a bandsaw. Well, it seems that my less than subtle approach worked. She took me on a bit of a surprise shopping trip Saturday to my favorite store. Ultimately, we headed home with a new Jet 18” bandsaw.

My wife colluded with my wood buddy and fellow LJ Jeffrey, and had a 14˝ Delta sitting in the middle of the garage floor when I came home from work on my birthday.

Make sure you frequently show off your more stunning bookmatches, veneers, etc. while repeating this phrase…
“Look at this cool (inset project here) I was able to make with the awesome bandsaw you bought me.”

Truly the gift that keeps on giving!
