I have a dilemma and am looking for suggestions. As you can see from the pic I have a rounded and tapered piece of walnut that I need to cut in half. And I half means along the whole length of the piece. It is 2" thick at the widest point and about 3/4" at the ends. I have a band saw that I was going to use, but don't want to just free hand it. Since it tapers, I really don't see how to use a fence here either. So, if you've done this before, I'd like to hear some suggestions.
