Laguna 14BX Band Saw

I decided that it was time to upgrade my bench-top bandsaw after almost burning it up trying to resaw a chunk of 3 inch wide walnut. After doing a bunch of research, and receiving my wife's blessing, I decided on a Laguna 14-12.  I spoke with one of the guys at a local retailer, and highlighted some of the features on the 14BX.  After speaking briefly with my wife, she approved the extra cost (about $300 more).

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
