A curved surface allows a roll that can pinch the band and cause a roll that could pull a hand into the blade. Now with the flat center of the log on the bandsaw table it is safe to cut a circle out of the half section of log. One of the easiest ways to do so is to cut out a series of circles from cardboard ranging from the smallest bowl you intend to turn to the largest your lathe will handle. There is no point in trying to turn an eighteen inch bowl on a fifteen inch lathe it will simply not fit. Having tacked the circle to the log section it is simply a matter of cutting out the outline of the bowl by following around the circle. Take your time and allow the sawdust to clear the cut in the green wood. The heat of the cut can cause the dust to expand. However the pitch of the saw will change with a clogged cut and slowing the cut will allow the dust to clear the pitch to drop and the cut to continue. Once there is a flat surface on which the log section can ride the log can be trimmed to widths desired for squares. Each width can then be laid on its side and squared off. It is not necessary most of the time to be fussy about the surfaces as they will be turned away.

Woodworkers often mistakenly assume that the stated size refers to the throat capacity (blade to frame) of a given machine. This is not correct as the throat capacity is normally very close to the wheel diameter which does not determine their size. Blade capacity of bandsaws varies and is an important consideration as it dictates to a certain extent what a woodworker can cut. The narrowest blades on a bandsaw will allow for very fine and intricate cutting while others slightly wider will cut graceful shapes easily. The wider the blade the easier it is to cut straight as the blades have the tendency to twist while performing the cutting action. Bandsaws that suit your business The smallest bandsaws are designed for benchtops and are usually in the range of 8". These are lightweight compact and designed for light work.
