I haven’t made one myself, but I had a friend in my old turner’s club that had a monster bandsaw that he used in conjunction with a sled to cross-cut logs into slabs for platters and shallow bowls.

I don’t have any pictures of it, but if memory serves me correctly, it was an inverted T-shaped jig constructed of 2 pieces of plywood … one piece served as a ‘base’, the other as a fence that was about 300mm high.

The fence was secured to the base with triangular braces that doubled as handles. It had a guide on the bottom that fit the miter track on his saw. He used quick-clamps to secure the log to the fence.
