I have nearly resawn 200BF of lumber thus far. And at a savings between $2-$3BF, I have basically paid for my 14in BS already. Personally, I do not consider resawing to be an over-rated activity. I made the decision to resaw in order to save $$$ and it is paying off for me. I know that others can argue, and argue successfully that buying dimensional lumber is a better route to go. That has not been my choice to pursue. And by resawing, I am in control of the final product, NOT the big box store.

I have averaged $2 -2.50BF for 8/4 Ash and 12/4 Soft Maple and I am a happy camper. I choose not to use the more expensive woods. I really love my 14in Rikon BS and have no real complaints, other than I wish I had an 18in version as well, or in place of. You know how it is… ;-)
