Limbs can definitely be used, but keep that end use in mind. I have cut plenty of them on my bandsaw. I try to use limbs for smaller items like boxes and stuff. Cut them thick to joint out the problems of bow, cup, twist. I have tried jigs and the best rides on the fence of my bandsaw so I can adjust the distance from the blade with the fence. I screw the limb section to the jig so that each cut is parallel to the previous one keeping in mind the screws are in there. Cut a slice, move fence in 1", cut a slice, and repeat. I would show a pic but I currently don't have any built right now since I have moved on to a chainsaw powered bandmill. I might be able to use sketchup to create a model.
