Hessam Sane's wooden bandsaw

Hessam Sane sent me some photos of his nearly complete bandsaw.

I really like how this saw came out with the black laminated plywood.

Click any photo to enlarge.

Hessam used a router circle cutter to cut the wheels out of particle board.

This is a good way to get circles perfectly round. However, it doesn't save you from trimming the spinning wheels once mounted because it's unlikely that you will get the bearings mounted centered enough. But trimming the wheels once mounted solves that.

And here's the first project with the bandsaw
(not counting the reindeer from the second photo)
