My usual resawing task is done on the tablesaw unless the board is too wide and the bandsaw is the only option. A featherboard is essential for safe resawing and never try resawing without a riving knife or splitter.
Additional requirements: The rip fence must be parallel to the sawblade/miter slots and wood should have been acclimated in the shop for a few weeks or more.
If the wood has rough edges, joint it or plane it straight and true first.
After resawing (to about 5/16” + 1/32” or more), I let the pieces (walnut & maple) “climatize” for a few days or a week before thickness-planing them to final thickness of 5/16”.
Caution: Do not attempt this method or technique if you are not an experienced tablesaw user or you don’t feel comfortable using the tablesaw to resaw stock.
