You need to cut a straight edge on a board. The only problem is, you don't have a tablesaw or radial-arm saw, only a bandsaw.

Add a long fence to your bandsaw to true that board. Make one a few inches longer than twice the length of the board you want to true. Clamp it to the saw table, extending a little more than a board length on each side of the blade, and then saw with your widest blade. Cut the second edge against the standard fence.
