KnotHead has it. I use this method to do quick resawing sometimes-
cut a kerf in either edge of a board on the table saw and then
push it right on through the bandsaw – needs no featherboards
or fussy fence settings because the band goes in the kerf
and doesn’t want to leave.

If I used the router bit method it would be only for final trimming
and squaring. I’ve found it unwise to trust routers to do this
sort of heavy cut well… and I’m assuming you don’t want to
screw it up.
