Sliding bandsaw support makes cutting large curves easy
To shape a curved tabletop I made recently, I could have used a jigsaw that made less-than-furniture-quality cuts, or my bandsaw with its tiny table. I opted for the bandsaw, but only after coming up with the outboard support system shown.The support board glides easily on the roller stands so I was able to focus on the accuracy of the cut instead of overcoming the board-on-board friction. A clamp at each end of the support board keeps the whole thing from accidentally rolling too far and toppling.—J. David Carlson, Cary, N.C.
