David Cavallaro is a retired technical salesman looking to continue his love of furniture making and woodworking in his newly found free time. A nice table saw would put the finishing touch on his shop at home and finalize his dream to have a complete woodworking space all to himself.
Being on a fixed income, David needed to get the most bang for his buck. Doing his homework and comparing different brands, models, prices and shipping charges, he contacted the Baileigh Industrial woodworking team for a quote. After reviewing his woodworking goals and available space in his shop, the Baileigh team delivered a solid, yet economical solution. The TS-1040E-50 table saw was the perfect fit.
David could not be happier.
He sent us this email:
“Finally got the saw up and running, the good news is that everything was square and no adjustments were necessary. If you are careful one person can assemble the saw no problem. Thank you. This machine cuts through wood like a hot knife through butter. The fence is great. The mechanism is nice and easy. I think I am going to like this saw.”
The other day I was building a fire and a few pieces of firewood were looking too nice to burn. I took them down to the IJ-666 jointer and ran them on adjacent faces to get a tight 90°. I finished them up on my table saw and planer. I now have some nice thick blanks for turning or re-sawing. I had wanted a jointer for years and took a chance on yours based on your company’s reputation in metal working and a great price for a larger machine than I would normally have bought. Great machine!
Baileigh Industrial has a pretty substantial woodworking team that is led by Aaron Cerkas and James Frenz. With 35 years of combined woodworking experience, these guys have done it all in woodworking.
Aaron came to us from Burger Boat, a well-known luxury yacht builder where he was the assistant millwork manager. He has worked with some of the rarest woods on the planet and has been recognized as a true artisan by many in the industry. Attached are some pictures of the Sycara, a replicated 1800’s vessel that has some of the most extravagant woodworking inside and out. Aaron was in charge of the majority of the woodworking operation which included working with madrone burl, paduk, ebony, anigre, along with some mahogany.
James or “Jimbo” Frenz grew up on the family farm and has been heavily involved in the local woodworking industry for many years. From simple construction and framing jobs, to full blown home building and interior finishing he has done it all. His portfolio is full of beautiful cabinetry and high end millwork that rivals the best in the industry.
These two woodworking aficionados lead our Wisconsin woodworking team in technical and complex woodworking applications. Whether you are just getting started in your home shop and need advice on what woodworking machine will fit your needs, or production woodworking time studies and technical specs are needed, the Baileigh woodworking teammates are some of the best in the business.
The husband and wife team of KillStress Designs are known for their heirloom quality woodworking and metal fabrication projects. Located in Anaheim, California, they specialize in modern art and furniture made from exotic woods and well thought out designs fabricated from metal.
Owner and master craftsman Tyler Smutz has filled his shop with some of the best woodworking and metal fabrication machinery on the market. In addition to his Baileigh CS-315EU cold cut saw, he recently pulled the trigger on the JP-1686 Jointer / Planer combo machine. With its 16” helical cutter head and heavy duty tables, he has made some beautiful works of art. One of his latest creations is this cherry headboard. The rough lumber used to construct this peice included some boards that weighed in at over 120 pounds. The JP-1686 handled the load with absolutely no sagging or table deflection.
You will also notice the incredible quality of these tables and chairs made from Walnut and steel. Joined and planed using the JP-1686, the parts fit together perfectly.
Here is a demonstration of his machine he was kind enough to send us.
Be on the lookout for Tyler and his wife as they are featured in magazines and on modern art websites on a regular basis.
