New Band Saw Update . . . .

Well we left off with me explaining how after all
of the fan fare I realized there were two sizes for
this saw. The saw in the previous post had a
cutting capacity of only 3 5/8" (from the table to
the guides above). It seems I was looking at one
and the store owner and I were ordering the other.
The one I wanted had a 4 5/8" cutting capacity.

After reordering the right size and installing the
table (yes Christopher) on the new one, it's time
to go to work. Pictured below is the saw. Also
below is a teeny, tiny box I make. This is what
I had in mind when I bought the saw.
The new band saw above, and below
the smallest box I make . . . "The Small Ring Box."

This has been rough sanded. Next is to final sand to 400 grit
and apply the Tung Oil finish. Then it will be waxed 
to a mirror finish. We'll have to show that the next time around.

Your workmanship on the little ring box is beautiful. I will be looking forward to seeing the box when it is done.

You've got yourself a real nice looking band saw.

Hello there~~~~~! :D How have you been? <3 Long time no see.

If I may ask, what's the tiny box you're holding in the photos above? Looks cute, and I love the new saw machine; it kind of reminds me of my sawing machine, lol. :)

* SEWING machine (apologies, silly typo.)

HI LOLA ! How have you been? I call the box a Small Ring Box.
