    Yes it does. I decided to go ahead and resaw the rest of the Sycamore slab into a tenor-sized back and side set, and the resulting pieces fit my bandsaw. The resaw took about a minute per pass, compared to somewhere around an hour to do a set with the hand saw.

    More like “What is happening outside the shed”. ... Today I have moved into the summer mode and I have been baking a fresh batch of soprano sides in kitchen foil...I cooked them at reg 6 for 10 minutes in the bending oven and they all came out nicely done.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    What's the difference between clamps, a heavy weight, and wrapping the top and bottom with a strap? I've seen all three techniques used.

    Probably preference, more than anything.

    Most typical clamps are going to be able to exert much more pressure than you're probably willing to stack on with weights. Even the cheap cam lever quick release clamps are usually well over 100 lbs of force, and a good c clamp can be over a thousand pounds.

    The makers of titebond recommend 175 - 250 psi for hardwoods. I'd be willing to bet that pretty much no one is getting there by stacking weights on top of something, at least for larger joints. A heel block is maybe 4 or 5 square inches, so you'd need in the neighborhood of a thousand pounds of weight. But, it's also pretty clear that you can make a successful joint at lower than that.

    I made a set of those round screw-type clamps, but I haven't had occasion to use them.
