Quick and easy Resaw jig I made for my bandsaw. I have used it a couple of time with remarkable success. Now that I can actually cut nice thin veneers I spent the $’s and upgraded my bandsaw blade to a 3/4” carbide tip. A bit spendy but I will recoup the money in short order.

That sled should serve you well. Quick and easy.

Hi. Looks like my kind of solution. Does the work piece have to be all the same length or would spacers be okay for shorter lengths?

The blade you brought is 3/4” why not go for the 1” ? I need to go this way as well and was looking at a 1” with 4 tpi. For a 16” Jet bandsaw which I think may be similar to your one. Can I ask where is the best place to order these from in the States?

Nice jig, having just got a decent resaw blade and struggled with a log I can see I need to get this made for myself. Thanks for posting!

That first picture really threw me. After looking thru the rest It became apparent that your sled is a really great idea. I’m definitely going to remember it for future reference. Thank You.

This will certainly come in handy for slicing up anything. Nice fabricating
