Jan 2004 I rented a 2100 sg ft commercial space to see what I could do with bamboo. My passion was to expose the end grain, so my first major purchase was the Agazzani band saw. It will cut almost 16” tall and I use a 1.25 wide diamond blade. I laminate blocks of bamboo and resaw to make my own end grain materials. My favorite thing to do is back light the panels (will do a blog or posting soon ) I’m not exactly sure why I like a band saw so much, maybe it’s all the power and yet it feels so safe ?
For the past 6 months I’ve been thinking about and looking for a sliding table saw. This 12” Paoloni turned up on Craig’s list last month for $3,500 and it makes me feel like a grown up and very professional.

Now this is a nice shop!! I would enjoy working in there. You have plenty of floor space and loads of headroom. You obviously have no worries about swinging sheet goods around in there. And you have some cool tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. It was fun to tour your shop.

I’d give my eye teeth to have that much room.
And that sliding saw & band saw are sa-weeet.
