Mine went exceedingly slow and took 3 and a half years. I paused to bury some family members, sell two houses, buy a house, start and finish flight school, etc. I was very prone to distraction in that period of my life.

Picked up an inexpensive 9" bandsaw, built a quicky stand for it and put it to work, this thing way outperforms my expectations. I can't believe I waited so long to finally get one, what a fun tool, oh and it's pretty useful too :lol:

Since I'm waiting to purchase more wood I decided to put the new bandsaw to use, i built a "bandsaw box" (jewelry box) for my my daughter, turned out pretty good for a first try and no prior bandsaw experience :D used some scraps from my zip build.

I have that same bandsaw. I didn't buy one until way after building the boat. It does a great job for my needs and budget.

There's been more than one occasion when I could have used a band saw. So far I've gotten away without one, but usually at the cost of more work to get the part to the correct shape by sanding.

It has really impressed me so far, i can see the usefulness of the bandsaw coming soon in my zip build, glad i got it, and it didn't break the bank :) i only wish i would have had it from the start

Me too, until now every cut on my zip has been with my cordless craftsman jigsaw, it does a good job but the bandsaw makes for far more accurate cuts, glad i got it, i did a quick video review on it, posted to youtube if your interested, channel link is in my profile,....josh
