Making wooden blades with Max

A well made video by Max ‘Menelaus’ of showing how to shape blades using a bandsaw and power sander.  It’s also interesting to note the reduced number of steps in the process compared to the procedure in my Recipe Book.

I like making things simpler although I have some doubts about the thickness of the result.  And I also have doubts about whether I would enjoy all the noise and the dust.  I like to use a sharp plane and I enjoy ‘surfing’ the wood with a draw knife, but if you want a quick result then this may be the best solution for you as for Max.
