Topic tags/keywords: jig bandsaw

I need a way to support some rather heavy bench legs while I cut them on the bandsaw. The table on the saw is too small and my HF roller stand is a couple inches short and rather flimsy. Anybody got any good ideas?

Measure the height of the saw table then start with something stable (like a trash can) and add a plywood top. Then start stacking things like a concrete block or perhaps a stack of 2X6 boards till you can match the height. Just be sure the temporary support is stable.

I built an out feed table for my band saw that also doubles as a glue up table etc with a storage shelf under it to stack wood that I resaw.

I use a roller stand from HD on the infeed side and built a really simple 2 legged outfeed table that is six feet long (attached to the table on the saw with 2 legs at the far end).

Thank for the tips guys. This is what I came up with, very simple Two boards, a hinge and a couple of spring clamps. It works great and very easy take off and on and folds up to be put out of the way when not in use.

Good solution!
