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!

Great looking jig.

Must be easy to adjust for blade drift.
