Over the last couple of years I’ve seen several of these 16” Wooden Bandsaws here on LJ’s based on Matthias Wandel’s plans. About a year and a half ago, I started building my own… it took about 6 months to finish a little at a time, and then another year to finally paint it. Well last night I finally finished painting and putting it back together and can finally post my completed bandsaw.
The design is great, it’s frame is extremely strong and durable. It’s runs smoothly and let’s me do everything from tight curves with a 1/8” blade to resawing up to 11” logs with a 3/4” blade. I built a simple stand to roll it around the shop, but haven’t quite finished the drawers for the cart yet…
