I needed a fence for my bandsaw for resaw. As usual, I had left over material to use. This is Baltic Birch, Maple and Walnut. I used a scrap piece of plastic laminate for the face. I made a block for the T-track on the bottom
to clamp to the bandsaw table. Hopefully, the pictures are self explanatory.

This is an awesome jig. I threw one together over the weekend to cut bridle joints and it is way to ugly, but effective, to post!
