Hello everyone,

As many others I made a Woodgear band saw. To give it a more European look I changed the model a little. It was fun to built. I also like the way Mathias Wandel has made his internet woodgears page.
The band saw is made from beech, spruce, pine, hard maple, intsia and meranti.
WW on the machine means; wieder (german for again) wandel and 400 is the wheel diameter in mm. (16 Inch) The chest of drawers is an old IKEA one from my daugther.

Thanks for reading.

That is a FINE looking rendition of the Woodgears bandsaw.
I have purchased the plans for the 16” version and absolutely will get it done some say.
Ran into an unemployment diversion, but I’ll be back.

Your color scheme is perfect.

Mijn Nederlands is niet slecht! Jouw Band Saw ook niet, mooij gedaan. Als ik genoeg ruimte heb, ga ik ook eentje bouwen.

Fantastic bandsaw build. It looks really professional, and probably works great. What did you use for the fence? It looks like some kind of miter gauge adapted for fence use.

Sheesh pants…SOO JEALOUS! Been looking at his plans for a while now, bought a grizz though, so it’ll probably be a while before I try this! That looks fantastic!

Very nice! I like your tagline about English/Dutch, too… It reminded me of the joke:

What do you call a person who speaks many languages? Multi-lingual.
What do you call a person who speaks two languages? Bi-lingual.
What do you call a person who speaks one language? American.

You did a great job on this. It looks really professional and I suspect that it performs superbly. I like the LED light. It provides illumination just where it’s needed.

Wonderful job on this … I just installed a simular LED light on my bandsaw, I like the light it gives.
I like the drawers, never enough space to store all the accessories. Great build.
