Bandsaws are one of the most useful machines in the shop. With one you can break down rough material, shape curved parts and even make your own veneer. The key to high performance is proper setup. In this course I'll walk you through my six steps for setting up a bandsaw that will make accurate resaw cuts in all kinds of woods and thicknesses without any drift whatsoever. The process is easy to follow and doesn't require an engineering degree to make it work. The method works with virtually any bandsaw of any size, regardless of make or model. Join me for my "6 Steps to Better Resawing" and you'll be slicing accurate veneers in no time. — Alex Snodgrass

Carve a Scallop Shell with Chuck Bender

by Chuck Bender 16 Lessons in $34.95

Although most scallop shells are relatively flat in nature, they provide a strong topographical change that drives home lessons needed to understand grain direction – the single most important skill to learn when it comes to woodcarving. Learning how to carve in the third dimension provides a strong foundation that allows you to carve virtually anything you want. Master furniture maker Chuck Bender teaches you step-by-step how to knock out a simple scallop shell as you develop and use the skills necessary to carve almost anything. This course divides the process into individual steps, walking you through layout and concave and convex lobes as you work with a short list of carving tools that won't blow-up your tool allowances for the year. At the completion of the course you'll be able to add flare to any furniture project by incorporating carved elements. Move your carving skills to new sculptural highs.
