Bandsaw Table System


Bandsaw Table System

This oversized table provides extra support for sawing or resawing plus the quick-set fence ends blade drift hassles.

If you’ve ever been frustrated by your small bandsaw table, this project is for you. No more struggling to balance large pieces while making intricate cuts or resawing.

Designed by George Vondriska, this two-part system features a table that triples the surface area of your old one. It comes tricked out with a fence that can be set at a skew to compensate for blade drift. The fence can be taken on and off, mounted on either side of the blade and adjusted in and out without losing the drift angle setting. When you need even more support, the extension table mounts in seconds. Fasten it outboard to support large stock (photo at right), or outfeed when resawing long boards. When you’re done, the extension table folds flat for easy storage.
