Now Frank this is going to take more than just one picture. All you've done so far is to tease us. Give us the whole story. Is it wood? metal? how did you make it? What are you using for wheels? A million questions and no answers. Talk about frustrating. Tell us more. Nicely done too!

Hi Frank! I like it! I think it's great. Is it quite hard to build? If You had a name on the saw, I don't think I would even think that something wasn't right. Nice Job And a good Pic!

I have seen diagrams for making a wooden band saw, and I think it's great! I wouldnt be able to resist painting a face on that top casing. What are its dimensions?
