Safety tips

 

2 illst. One w V-shaped board, bandsaw cutting board
Control your cuts with a two-legged pushstick

A pushstick keeps your fingers away from harm, but sometimes you'd feel more in control if you had better contact with the wood. Bandsawing is one of those times. Make a two-legged pushstick like the one shown for better bandsawing. Cut it from 3/4" plywood. In use, push the workpiece with the short leg; hold it down and control its movement with the long one.
