Here's a quick, accurate way to make a freehand squaring cut on your bandsaw, as you would for a turning blank. After making a tick mark to indicate the cutline, and with your bandsaw table set 90° to the blade, cut a shallow kerf at your tick mark. Then rotate the stock a quarter turn so the kerf is on top, and cut along the kerf—no drawing, no square, and no miter gauge. —from the WOOD® shop
