Are you tired of making Band Saw boxes and Cutting Boards? Want a wood project a little more challenging? Why not build a 1939 Lagonda Rapide Tulipwood Tourer? Actually 9 were built in a British factory taking over 2000 man hours each. It ...

I am a 77 y/o retired nursery owner. Woodworker since I built a 16' Cypress rowboat at age 15. Grew up on the Chesapeake Bay near the Naval Academy. I have made furniture for me, my daughter and my granddaughter but no longer able to muscle big projects around. Now I make jewelry boxes, cutting boards, lazy susans, toys and other small projects. I spend 4-6 hours a day in my shop which is a 25' square building I attached to the back of my garage. I also grow, train and sell Bonsai trees, mostly native species that I can find and dig up locally. We foster Border Collies that have been rescued from shelters. They stay with us until we find a suitable "forever home". We also have a dog of our own, a nearly white Border Collie/Aussie mix named Merlin. Smartest dog I have ever owned.
-- I am going to go stand outside so if anyone asks about me, tell them I'M OUTSTANDING!

After waiting 3 weeks my band saw finally came in. I have been wanting to get a new band saw to replace my 25 y/o Rockwell 14. This has been a really good machine for a long time but it is worn out and I keep having to buy parts and up grades. It ...
