Thanks for the input y’all. Yes it is flat sawn. These drawer fronts will be 3/4” thick and solid maple. Not paneled or veneered. I have 7 total. Two 16”, two 20”, two 30”, and one 34”. It’s the 30” and 34” that concern me. I wasn’t considering resawing. My band saw is not big enough to resaw 7+ inches. I guess if I do decide to rip and rejoin I should probably invest in a thin kerf so the grain will line back up as much as possible. Yes, no, maybe?
