Wondering if anybody have ever ripped western red cedar for a kayak/canoe on there band saw. Every time I finish ripping on ts and look at the pile of saw dust I payed for and maybe a little safer with the 16' lenght. I keep thinking about tring out my bandsaw. I have a 18" steel city but have never tried ripping long lengths with it. My concern is blade drift and keeping a uniform thickness over the width of the board. Any thoughts.
