    Building a desk

    hi, this is for sale in northampton, cost about the price of the laminated board you want for the top. Probably won't have sold as it had 23 mins and no buyers. Other than that restore something, like an old 50's oak desk, do the planet a favour ! kev. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Computer-Desk...

    Wood Id?

    without confusing the issue it's mahogany and when polished it will look like mahogany, it's just not brazilian mahogany. it's a very nice timber to work with. no idea why people gat all into it.

    Bandsaw

    I'd say you want a big old saw, may be wrong and there's lots of opinions on here but putting a long plank through a bandsaw is fairly tricky unless you've already tried this and are happy with the result

    anyone tell me what delta scroll saws are like ?

    thanks Gill, was wondering about the comparison. Guess a lot of folks run their Hegners all day, I used my Diamond for more general woodwork, restoration and some fretwork. Buying one from ebay is quite a pain so maybe I'll just have to save up and get a Hegner.

    anyone tell me what delta scroll saws are like ?

    saw a delta for sale locally and wondering what they are like, I used to have a diamond so I'm kind of fussy in as much as I like a fret saw that cuts straight. also can anyone tell me how the Hegners compare to a Diamond ? Kev.
