World Maker Faire New York is this weekend and I will be doing bandsaw demos. I looked on line for a cheap, portable bandsaw to bring to the fair and in this video you see the 10-inch saw I purchased for the occasion. It’s a ” bench top” saw small enough for mounting on—a bench top.
But since I will using this one at the fair I’ll need a stand with a shelf for the small vacuum. I used 5/8″ square stock steel for the legs,2′x2″ angle iron for the top frame, and 1/8″ x 3/4″ flat stock for a simple old school industrial deco arch I put on each side. The arch sides are inspired by the Eiffel Tower. I recently saw a picture of the tower and it gave me the idea for the detail.
