It is probably the blade. The set is stamped into bandsaw blades and it is very dificult to get the same set on both sides of the blade. This will cause the blade wander as you call it to one side or the other. If using a fence angle your wood until it is cutting straight turn of saw with out moving wood then angle fence to match angle of the wood. The saw should cut straight then. You may want to try a different or better quality blade that may help.
