by Dave Morris – Right after restoring my old Jet band saw, the first thing I wanted to do was resaw some usable wood from a pile of redwood slats that came from some old wine vats. They were curved in both length and width, and covered with years of crust. This would make the job both messy and dangerous on a tablesaw, plus a table saw did not have the necessary cutting height to resaw a slat is width. Hmmm, time to make a band saw outfeed table.
We will get started by first taking a look at the drawing. I imagine you will immediately notice the absence of overall measurements – that is because this bandsaw jig will be specific to your individual bandsaw.
When working with small pieces at my band saw, there was not a handy place to set them aside. So I mounted a plywood shelf to the arm of the saw.
