This was my first bandsaw box on my new Rikon 14” Bandsaw. I used inexpensive poplar which I laminated to get a 6” by 12” solid piece of wood. The next attempt will be with mahogany and cherry.

I used an 1/8” Carter blade. It took me some time to adjust the Rikon. All of the other blades would dull within a few cuts. The carter accuright blades are much better. I snapped the blade yesteday but I have been using it for more than a month with some pretty dense wood.

Nice work! How do you like the Rikon so far? I have one as well. Still trying to get the fence dialed in properly for re-sawing.

Once I got it tuned up it has been great but it took me a few weeks and about 4 blades to get it working properly. I have not been doing much resawing yet. The blades seem to make all the difference. I have heard the Highland Woodworking timberwolf blades are great for resawing.
