That’s always a fun one to watch.

I saw Alex Snodgrass, the guy that tours the shows for the Carter line of bandsaw products turn out about half a dozen of those things in a couple of minutes. I didn’t time him, but it takes him about half as long, compared to the video above.

I actually have one of the miniature reindeer set up with the Christmas decorations that he cut and gave to me when the Woodworking Show was here in Denver a couple months ago.

When these guys really get going on these things, I both watch in amazement, and shudder at the same time as their fingers fly close to the blade.

That is a cool video. I saw it a while ago, but it still amazes me.

I’m with you Jonathan . . . after being bit by my BS I am super careful.

I wonder what size blade he has on that thing?

It does not seem it has a Carter Stabilizer on, or am I missing something?

I saw him at a local woodworking show. Pretty amazing and there was always a crowd watching. He would give them away to the kids nearby.

My daughter got one. And I had to spend 20-30 minutes at home duplicating what he did in under 2 minutes, so I could have a second one for my son.

There’s no Carter on the saw in the above video, you are correct Steven H.

That’s interesting to watch. Look at how the blade twists in the cut.
