In this class, the instructor will demonstrate several Tips and Tricks for using the Bandsaw while inspiring you to be safely creative in the use of a bandsaw. Several old and venerated techniques will be demonstrated as well as commonly used techniques, plus some updated tricks.
This class is a prerequisite for upcoming bear carving and wood sculpture class(es), because you will learn how to use the bandsaw to rough out your carving.
Some techniques are suitable for wood turners who can use the bandsaw to simplify and shortcut the turning process by creating better rough profiles before putting the work on the lathe.
The class is oriented to the average woodworker, but is very suitable for novices as well. During the class you will use a couple of the tricks and techniques to make your own bandsawn box to take home and apply your choice of finishes.
