Resawing lumber bandsaw JIG
Bandsaw milling or what ever it’s called…
These pictures come from my blog Resawing lumber bandsaw JIG (milling).

I visited a friend the other day, and in his firewood pile I found these nice pieces of wood, and could see a little box, a new handle for some chisels, a mallet and God knows…
So yes a new jig was needed… Or perhaps wanted – and since I love making them, here we go:

I ‘invented’ a holdfast system of simple construction angels, so I did not have to make to deep holes in the timber.
Otherwise the jig are inspired from a tour of two hours on the internet, before going to the workshop.

If you are more interested or want to make one, you can find inspiration on my blog, feel free to ask questions if I can be at any help.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, and that you are not tired of all my postings…

Hi olddutchman,
It’s simpy a piece of construction steelstring (or what it’s called) with holes, for fastening wood in strange sizes.
Thank you.

Ok, I thought it was a blog continuation, but now it’s the project. A very nice way to make your own boards for your projects Mads.

Great idea instead of running the screws too deeply into good wood : )

Hi Mads, I was doing some research on the internet to help me design a jig for my bandsaw to do some resawing and I saw your name, you’re a famous guy you know? If I saw this several years ago when you posted it, I don’t remember it. Just wanted you to know!

Best thoughts and wishes.

Hi Ken,
I think notorious might be more the word, lol.
Thanks for letting me know, I am always so happy when I hear others can be inspired.
It is like a circle of good energy.
Best thoughts my friend,
