Your Laguna cut as smoothly as that bandsaw? But, forget the bandsaw,
I'd like some of the wood that was available in that era and the
prices that went with it. Imagine what it would be worth in today's
If there's any lumber yards within an hour's worth of Toronto that
have lumber fitting that description, I haven't yet seen one.
One of my fantasies after finally owning my own home is to search out
a slab of solid wood suitable in size for a dining room table. I can
just envision myself setting up router jig and flattening a wooden
slab that size.
Gotta buy more lottery tickets, many more lottery tickets...
Yeah. I could use that house down payment and put it towards buying
one of those monstrous slabs of wood. Sat through the slide show. Some
absolutely monstrous pieces of wood there. And, a hell of a lot of it,
stickered, stacked and drying. Think I'd have to visit British
Columbia to find anything to match what they had at Urban Hardwoods.

These guys look to have some interesting slabs:
If you've got $4,400 to spare, check this item: 270829016706
Some of their slabs seem cut a bit thin compared to the overall size,
but what do I know?
On the BS, it looked like a 2x2 about 8" long. It had several slots in
it. The guide on the shaper looked like a carving.
I was once told by a Minimax rep that a good BS does not need a guide.
I tend to agree. Not saying that the BS in the video was not an
excellent one, just that the guide block was marginal by today's
standards and saw would probably easily keep up with most of today's
It was beautiful but there are many band saws that can easily keep up,
my Laguna does not hesitate when resawing. It will cut thicker wood
faster than my cabinet saw. You have to be comparing apples to apples.
Cool stuff. If anyone needs any of the text translated, I will be
happy to do so. Just post it here.
It's sad to note that many, if not most, of those kids would die in
the trenches in the following six years.
Very cool, a mostly lost talent suspect. With out the sound I imagined
hearing the music that Festool plays on their site. ;~)
