TM reader Dan tipped us off to the awesome video above (originally posted on BoingBoing) in which a guy cuts a three-dimensional deer out of a block of wood with nothing but a slightly-modified bandsaw — in under a minute.

No, I’m not kidding. Take a look and I’ll meet you back after the jump.

I’ll admit that I agree completely with the first YouTube commenter: Even more amazing than the craftsmanship is the fact that he still has all his fingers after whipping them around a bandsaw blade that way. Still, that’s some incredible artistry. I wonder what the guy can do when he takes some time?

Sadly I couldn’t find much information on the bandsaw mods. At the beginning of the video we see a title indicating that the mods include “polyurethane tires” and “precision-ground blades.” I’m guessing that the tires might allow him to make those super-tight turns, and the blade is obviously extra-sharp. Do any of you know about these mods? Anything that’ll turn a basic Craftsman saw into something like we see in the video is worth a feature here on Toolmonger.

    there is a video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7gmzra_5_c with a guy cutting a reindeer. He talks about using the carter blade stabilizer on his band saw setup.

    Yup, Carter makes all kinds of bandsaw upgrades. A surprising amount of 14″ bandsaws are made with the exact same [chinese] castings–the pricey ones just have better guides, tires, and different paint/stickers. You can upgrade the crap out of a basic saw for the same price as a high-dollar one, and the results will be far better. You would be amazed at the stuff you can do with a nice blade and better guides.

    This is the standard band saw demo at every woodworking show. At last weeks “Woodworking Show” in Maryland they had a “stacked set of reindeer cut.

    They not only demonstrate skill, but advertise the blades and accessories for the band saw, not hacks.

    The great American woodworker Sam Maloof was famous for his skill at shaping furniture pieces on the bandsaw.

    The Carter Stabilizer is what you are looking for.

    I agree with Robert, Carter Products were at the New England Woodworking Show last weekend and ran a very good demonstration of bandsaw setup. The stabilizer is designed to enhance tighter radius cut and is actually run with no lower guide.

    I think he’s done this before.

    I also attended the WWS at Springfield. I purchased the guides for my Delta BS. They work great with no drift. I did not yet buy the scroll stabilizer guide but no doubt will soon.

    it’s not “under the minute”
