So in my last blog I noted that I have added a bandsaw to my arsenal of tools. It was a great deal and needed a new blade and some quick cleaning up. Well I went and got a blade yesterday and cleaned up the saw and installed the new blade today. Then I just played around a bit. Here are the two projects I did in order to play around some and get familiar with the tool. I decided I would just post them here and not as an actual project, maybe I’ll have something by the end of the weekend to post.
A puzzle, just wanted to play with making different shapes.The bottom is just a piece of scrap pegboard glued on. I got bored later and colored in the pieces using highlighters that were sitting my desk.
This is a box similiar to the anniversary box made but I took a thin piece off of each end and then cut out the middle before gluing the bottom back on and drilling a hinge hole for the lid. I really am looking forward to trying my hand at a real bandsaw box at some point soon.
Both of these were of course made from 2×4 scrap. I had fun and am looking forward to much more soon.
Happy Halloween to you all and thanks for looking.
