I did some work on mom recipe box today! I try resawing on the table saw then I finish the cut by hand, I am doing a lot of hand work on this project! Note I dont remend resawing on the table saw it’s not the best method.

A nice piece of wood. Good job on the cut and true-up.

Looking good Charles. Looks like you have a handle on the hand tools :)

I did see an online article in Wood on using the tablesaw as a resaw tool. Basically, you would make a zero clearance plate for the TS but make a slot for a glued in, thin piece of hardwood to act as a splitter. This way the two halves won’t bind in to each other and cause kick back. You slide the board through, flip it, then slide it through again. This gives you 6 inches of cut with a 3inch raised blade. Not the best method, but if you have thick stock and you have no other option, it can do in a pinch (as long as you don’t pinch the wood;)

Can’t say enough about how the love of your work and the love for your mother inspires. Keep it up buddy!

Charles, it looks like you have developed good Plane technique. I need to do that. I agree with every one here, you have improved your skills. The Walnut you choose is very nice and I am sure will make a beautiful box. How did you manage to hand rip that board and get it so straight. Good progress! Good work! Nice project. Thanks for posting.
