A master at work

I saw a video of his technique years ago and, although I've never made a rocker or for one minute think I'm even in his category of craftsmanship I have used this sawing method however ham handed it's very useful for sculpting things. Also Jimmy Diresta uses a technique that I have adopted of drawing the object backwards across the blade and, the band saw acts like a rasp depending on the angle the piece is being drawn back it gets more aggressive or less aggressive. Thanks for sharing, Sam was an amazing craftsman.

That's a good tip, but if done a lot on only one side, there is a danger of dulling the teeth on that side of the blade, which could lead to drift issues.
