After having less then desirable results resawing with my 14” RIDGID band saw and looking for a solution or alternative I found a couple blogs and set about making a frame saw and re-sawing by hand. You can check out the blogs here: http://hyperkitten.com/woodworking/frame_saw.php3 and here: http://www.bob-easton.com/blog/?p=271. The frame is Ash, the saw blade is cut down from a hand saw, I had it re-toothed at 5 tpi with a 0 degree rake pretty aggressive! I plan on using it for a while and shape it some more for comfort before adding a coat of BLO. The last two pics are the results of my test cut.
