Hey Buddy’s, Like most of us I’ve been a busy dude. I have had a good three week run out in the Shop after work and the weekends. Last weekend drove down to Grizzly and came back with a GO514X2. After getting it dialed in (most of Sunday) what do you think was the first thing I did? Hmmm… I wonder? Thats right! I made some cutting boards of coarse! Nothing says trial run like a cutting board. Anyway, The saw is AWESOME! I also re-sawed some curly as I plan on selling book-matched curly in my store (new category coming soon;). I easily can see the band saw is going to open many new doors for me. Next will be a circle cutting jig and a curve cutting jig, (are they the same jig?) then yes probably the double curve. I’ll have to grow and learn with each new jig but with friends like you I feel totally confident! I can see the band saw advantage right away on these boards; beside cutting the curves, I ripped all the thin strips with ease and was amazed at the efficiency and saving of saw kerf. Ripping the strips for the Woven boards was tedious and wasteful on the Table Saw, This was down right fun! I have a little stock pile of 1/8” strips now just because I couldn’t stop.
Well, the sky is the limit! I must say however with out the inspiration of this site and the fact that you guys have my back I might not have bought this saw. In fact, I know I wouldn’t have. I’d be making flat grain, striped, cutting boards and playing guitar in my free time, my wife would be sick of looking at me and contemplating a part time job. So….. THANKS!

Looks like that new band saw is just the ticket. Great looking boards. I really like you designs.

I’m impressed too. I’ve had my bandsaw way longer than you have and I haven’t done anything like this. Really nice job on these. I expect we’ll be seeing more great stuff off your bandsaw in the future.

poroskywood,
Nice looking cutting boards. I too have a Grizzly bandsaw the 21” model and love it, though I have yet to make a cutting board either-LOL. Is your new saw the 19” or 17” model? It looks so much like mine it’s not funny. I have used it to slice some mighty thin banding I’ve made on it, some being only 3/64” thick with great success so far. That insert for the blade is quite fragile, or was on mine it got replaced with shop made ones the second day I had my new saw. I’m sure you’re probably aware of the Wood Slicer blades sold at Highland wood working, they work wonders on those Grizzly bandsaws. Congratulations again on the nice cutting boards and the new saw.

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis

Cool, wine and cheese go good together, with this cutting board no need for too much wine.

It’s a 19” GO514×2 I’m learning about drift and adjusting my fence today. What a blast.
I was not aware I should look into Woodslicer blades, I got a 1” 3tpi and a 1/2” Timberwolf for general purpose, after reading some other posts. I wouldn’t know the difference if you hit me in the head with 40 lbs. of it.

Dude, either I have to lighten up on the dizzy pills, or that board came out AWESOME!!!

When you start cranking out some wild jigs and stuff, take pictures so those of us with two left thumbs can ride your crest.
Speaking of thumbs, remember to “tuck’em in”........

Thanks for sharing!
