Wooden Bandsaw Project

I came across an excellent website call Woodgears. It is by Matthias Wandel. He does an excellent job designing and documenting all kinds of woodworking projects. One of his projects is a 16" Wooden Bandsaw. After I saw it, I knew I would like to make one. Yes, you can buy a 16" bandsaw, but I thought this was a great and unique project. The plans were $21 and for what I got, that was very reasonable. He provides very detailed 3D drawings done in SketchUp as well as pictures and videos from the build process. I figure I am about 75% complete at this point. I am building the enclosure now and then will mount the motor. More to come later...
