Default A better shot of my band saw base

For the people like me that can't stand for long periods of time. I made a base for my band saw instead of using the one it came with. Here is the pic Harry so don't miss it.

Glenmore, you can safely sit with your toes under the bench without fear of it collapsing! It will outlive us all.

You have been busy, Glenmore

Will you be using the saw to cut bowl blanks?

The base you made looks very sturdy and convenient. This is what you call band sawing made easy.
