    I also like to make things from scratch but it was only three years ago that I acquired my own bandsaw. What a revelation ! The ability to cut thin laths has transformed my model making. Not only does it enable me to produce laths as thin as 2mm, but then cut them into 2 x 2 strips.
    If you have the space on your bench I highly recommend getting a bandsaw. Mine is an inexpensive starter model bit it can handle timber up to 60mm thick, and with just two different blades, one with 6 teeth per inch, one with 12, I can make coarse or fine cuts which are good for modelling. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Iโ€™ve meaning to post this for a long time. I know many people prefer kits but I like to build the whole thing from scratch. Often I need to cut wood into consistent long thin strips, like for planking I do this with either table saw or bandsaw, this technique works for both. I am using a full size table saw but it will as well for a smaller saw.

    Using the rip fence in the traditional way doesnโ€™t work too well. It difficult to run thin strips and dangerous.

    This simple jig makes it safe and easy, you are actually using the โ€œoff cutโ€ Simply cut a piece of wood to an accurate known dimension. Add a small support piece to one end and you are good to go. Set the rip fence to known dimension plus the size of strip you want. In the video I am cutting 1/8 inch thick strips.
    The sure way to succeed is, just try one more time
