Trimming Down Wine Staves
I came into a number of wine and whiskey barrels recently and am having a delightful time making simple things like wine racks, spice racks, end tables, etc. with them. As I have been working more I realize the need to have perfectly straight pieces as part of my designs (working on a couple options for a folding chair at the moment) and am stumped with how to cut the staves from their larger middle section down to straight pieces only curved along their length. Any ideas for a sled or jig for my table saw that would do the job? Currently I am just marking them off and cutting them with my band saw, but it is not entirely consistent and certainly time consuming.
