No matter what type of woodworking projects you like to tackle, there’s no doubt about the fact that a bandsaw is one of the most essential woodworking tools. Whether you’re using it to resaw a piece of walnut to make some veneer for a large project or you’re cutting out intricately shaped letters for a sign that you’re building, a bandsaw can handle pretty much any task you throw its way — if it has the right blade on it, of course.
Although bandsaws are known for blade drift, the truth is that with the right setup, you can greatly minimize the problems that tend to crop up. We recommend this video from The Wood Whisperer who relies on expert advice from Alex Snodgrass to set his bandsaw up perfectly. Another great approach comes from David Picciuto of Make Something, who shares his video on how to set up and calibrate your bandsaw.
Picking the Right Tool for the Job
One of the coolest things about woodworking is that there are multiple ways to approach everything. For example, you can flatten a piece of wood using sandpaper, a handplane, or a planer. They all get the job done, proving that regardless of the tools you have at your disposal, there’s always a path forward.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t seek to find the right tool for the job. After all, if you are cutting box joints on your table saw, you’ll want to use a blade with a flat grind so you don’t end up with unsightly gaps. Could you use a normal blade and still get the job done? Absolutely, but making the investment in the right blade means never having to worry about finding ways to fix the problem later.
