I had a need to build a sled for my band saw to cut up billets of Ebony wood, this is what I came up with after viewing several web pages on the subject on LJ (thank you all who posted your band saw Projects it was a big help in designing this one) and other website on the web. This billet of ebony is 58” long and weighs 79 pounds. Shown is the first cut after that I flip the wood over flat side down and cut the wood square then from there is just a bunch of fence cuts to 5/4’s and eventually sticks that are 5/4’s Square. Once that is done the wood will be ready to make walking cane shafts, which manufacturing walking canes is what I do for a living.
Thanks again for all the information I taken from this site you guys have been very helpful.
-- A walking cane should be more than a handle on a stick.
