Does anyone know how I might be able to quarter saw some small logs with a bandsaw?

I tried doing a search here for band saw sleds and could not find any to post.

If you do an online search will see several example of them you can modify to fit your needs.

Ive trying to find one too, I run across some spalted Maple in my wood pile now and again sure would like to figure a way to run some of that thru my 20 in bandsaw. I was thinking of a long table that makes an infeed and outfeed extention, sort of wrap around the bed with a miter slot running the length. Then some kind of adjustable fence sled that would have a runner in the miter sled. Screw the log on the sleds fence run it thru, then move it over for the next cut. Maybe someone has done something like this and could get us on the right track.
