Cutting on the band saw When cutting on the band saw, you can cut straight and large curves without making relief cuts. When cutting, keep the line directly in front of the blade.
Relief Cuts When cutting angles and small curves you need to make relief cuts first. Cut straight in to the edge of your line or corner, then back your wood straight out. (The only time you move the wood backwards.) Then cut your shape out.
