Resawing Blade For A Bandsaw - 35 replies
Ok, for all of you experts on resawing with a bandsaw, I have a quick question. I have a Powermatic 14” bandsaw. I have never had a real need for resawing before and therefore have never done this.

Good Learning Experience - 11 replies
I was thinking today that I wish I had a video camera in the shop. I planed two birch 4/4 boards to 3/4 by about 6 inches wide. I’m making a face frame for a large storage cabinet. As I was cutting the strips of birch, 1 1/2 inches wide for the frame, I noticed as the board passed the riving knife that there was so much tension in the w...

Hit A Bullet - 29 replies
Well, I had a first today. I was planing some black walnut that I had purchased from a hardwood lumber company. I was running a 4/4 board about 10 inches wide.
