Quick 'n' easy bandsaw extension table

Sometimes you may find your bandsaw table too skimpy to support the work. And you don't want to spend time making a complicated table extension.

Cut a piece of 34 " plywood to the size needed, then cut out a slot to admit the bandsaw blade, as shown above. Clamp the plywood extension to the table. If you want to rip wide stock, clamp or screw a wood fence to the table extension, parallel with the bandsaw blade. Support long boards with a stand positioned on the outfeed side of the saw.
