Oversize Bandsaw Table Supports Big Parts and Panels
When cutting long, curved furniture parts on my bandsaw, I had difficulty maneuvering them safely and accurately using my normal work stands. So I made this table extension, which measures 4 ft. wide by 7 ft. long. The notch at the front left corner provides clearance for my body. Ribs underneath add rigidity and fit around the existing bandsaw table, letting me use Quick-Grip clamps to secure it. The table is supported at each end with a work stand. Finally, I stabilize the wobbly blade kerf from under the table with a wedge and another Quick-Grip clamp. The table supports work of all sizes, making it easy to get accurate cuts.
