Yes another wood post…
Devised a fixture for cutting lumber on the bandsaw. Built it last week and finished when the t-slots arrived yesterday. Its basically a table that attaches to the band saw, with a sled that runs in a groove, and a fence that clamps and indexes the log on the sled.
Made a different fence to start, but the last minute brainstorm of a pipe clamp fence really works well. The other fence will work better for thin slices.
Tested it on a mulberry log, then went on to a medium cherry log. Put on a new blade and the thing works really well.
Now I guess I’ll have to figure out better wood storage and possibly a small drying kiln, because my dad and I are gonna rip through all that downed timber that we cut up a couple weeks ago.
