    LOL Ken you trying to show me up for getting bench saw out.

    Good video

    Its just that I do not get a lot of time and when I do get time I pretty tired. Week before done 80 hours, last week 90 hours, this week already notch up 30 hours. I had yesterday and got today off

    I dont see anything wrong with using power tools in combination with hand tools. If I had a thickness planer, and a bandsaw I would surly use them. 😉

    The Stihl chainsaw in the background must be his backup.  🙂

    Craig,  its a good back up :). I’d prefer a 30 inch bar tho.  More power 🙂

    If I ever get a larger space for a shop, I’m definitley getting a large bandsaw for resawing boards.  I can see that being very useful.

    Wow, Juryaan, that’s an interesting saw, never heard of a maebiki before. Apparently the large blade is to help keep the saw straight. Better hope you start straight. 🙂
