Being very new at woodworking, I decided to pick up some power tools for Christmas.
One was a floor model 15” band saw.
I had seen a link on here somewhere about a guy at a trade show cutting a 3D deer on a band saw and I thought that I would like to try that.
So downstairs I went and took a small scrap of 2×4 and immediately proceeded. After 10 minutes the first picture was the result. I call him “Firewood”.
The second picture is another small scrap of 2×4 that I notched on the table saw and put a nail inside it.
All of these pieces are made from one piece of wood, there is no cutting and gluing back together. I brought them into work and everyone is amazed at them.
The third picture is the usual cube-in-a-cube done on my new drill press.
The fourth picture is my push stick that I made for my table saw. I got the pattern from a hand saw handle, cut it out with a jig saw, routed the edges with a router, sanded with a bench sander and applied a coat of Tung oil.
I still have many more jigs and things to build in my new shop before anything substantial comes out of it, except my blanket chest I did over the holidays, but that was a fluke.
Thanks for looking.
