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.
