Resawing on the bandsaw requires a wide blade, at least 1/2”, and a fence that has been set to compensate for the drift of the blade. A featherboard, or better yet a stack of them, is also a big help.

The surface of the board riding against the fence has to be flat. Any twist or cup must be removed first. Also, wood with uniform density works best. Hard spots, curl, knots, ect. can force the blade off course.
