Hello again! So here is another (not so exciting to look at but useful) shop upgrade. I recently came across some free cherry and walnut logs. Aside from turning some of the blanks on my lathe I thought I’d try my hand at making some small boards out of some of them for boxes and projects like that. Which means, milling and resawing.

I was amazed at how simple of a design this was, of course I over built it, but this was made from scraps that I had in my shop mostly 3/4 inch birch plywood and a piece of MDF for flatness.

At its core its just an miter fence from an old table saw, that rides in a 3/4 inch dado, which allows the fence to swivel and adjust for blade drift, resulting in pretty nice cuts so far. The table it clamps to also has a runner that rides in the existing bandsaw table dado, and thats it!

I know its not as exciting as other projects on here, but if this helps someone, as the video that inspired me for this design helped me, then maybe its worth its weight in digital files for others to see.

Thanks for looking!

Nice job. You will find these helpful around the shop. I built one back in 2014 and seem to use it a lot lately.

These are just so useful and so much safer to use

Thank you, I am excited to make more accurate re saw cuts and mill some of my own stock.

Very well done. I like the simplicity of using the miter gauge to adjust the fence for drift!
