I vote for the bandsaw. I’m no where near being the seasoned woodworkers that most of  you fellows are but here is my reasoning.  When ever Paul begins a project, no  matter how simple or complex, he has always started with pre-dimensioned wood.  The way I get to that point in my work space is by using the bandsaw attatchment on my Shopsmith.  It provides me the ability to manipulate the wood in all three dimensions, length, width and depth.   Everything else is then up to me.  Lately, I’ve even been taking split oak firewood and turning it into something I can work with.  I’m not sure I could use any other machine to do that.

Great question Ken and I’m looking forward to seeing the responses and learning from the others.
