Woodworker: Nick BoyntonThis shopmade bandsaw has seen Boynton through hundreds of woodworking projects. The plywood-and-maple framework and table are torsion-box construction. Boynton says he took great care to accurately balance the 21-in. medium-density fiberboard wheels with glued-on rubber tiles. He used a hacksaw and a drill press to create the steel blade guides and tension/tilt mechanism. The saw uses a 146-in. blade; it has a 14-in. resaw capacity and a 20-in. rip capacity.
