A long reach keeps fingers safe when resawing. This bandsaw push stick is made from 1/2 inch plywood, and the shape is cut on the bandsaw. Edges are rounded over with a rasp or router.
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.
