Anytime you saw a workpiece on edge at your tablesaw or bandsaw, you’ll appreciate the extra support you get from a fence at least twice as tall as the standard fence.

Anytime you saw a workpiece on edge at your tablesaw or bandsaw, you'll appreciate the extra support you get from a fence at least twice as tall as the standard fence. I made this one from 2×4 scraps and 34 " plywood, and use it for resawing. Best of all, it goes on and off in seconds, with no need for drilling or tapping the factory fence.
