TABLESAW RESAWING JIG ADAPTED FROM CHARLES NEIL’S RESAWING DVD.

I am in the process of preparing lumber that I’m getting from nature! Charles Neil did a “Resawing” DVD many years ago, it may be available or may not. Charles demonstrated resawing techniques using a tablesaw and the bandsaw.
The jig presented here is made up of available shop materials. I used MDF because I had it as well as three-quarter inch, fir plywood. What you see is the assembled jig.

The jig is made to go over tablesaw fence. The plywood edge is where the resawing piece is butted up against and anchored down with a clamp not currently shown.

As you can see here are the parts to be assembled.

As with all my other projects the wood received two coats of Seal Coat and two coats of waterborne poly.

Thanks for looking, your comments, criticisms and humor is welcome!

’ I am in the process of preparing lumber that I’m getting from nature!...’ By that I presume you mean it will be wet, in which case, please be careful Tom. Having said that, the Jig looks as if it will do the job…nice one!

Tony,

It has many uses for vertical sawing with a table saw, as Phil toldme, “be careful”. Release of tension in any wood can bind the saw blade, therefore multiple passes were advised by Charles.

Good Luck!
