A good ½” wide blade with 3 or 4 TPI is a good choice for resawing and cutting thick stock. I have never seen a 2 TPI blade for consumer bandsaw but they may exist.

Tooth set or style also important, have found simple flex back carbon steel blades with hook tooth work well for me. Have good luck re-sawing logs and cutting bowl blanks. This type of bandsaw blade least expensive blades to buy. Been buying Lenox FB CS 3 TPI hook blades since buying my bandsaw. There are other brands selling carbon steel blades too that should work as well as Lenox.

Suffolks Machinery Timber Wolf blades very popular, excellent customer service as well as Highland Hardware Wood Slicer blades too. Can learn a lot from these web sites.
