Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw resaw

Anyone out there near the Myrtle Beach area willing to resaw or let me resaw some maple on your bandsaw? I have a project I am working on and I need to resaw about 8-9 feet of maple. The boards I have are 13/16” and I need 5/16” stock. But here is the rub….I need the boards about 6 1/2 ” wide. My bandsaw will only resaw up to about 5”. It is just a waste of a lot of wood if I plane it 1/2”. I planed the prototype down to 5/16” and it was heartbreaking to basically see a small project’s worth of clippings on the floor!! If anyone is in the area that can help out I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Thanks

Darren Hilburn

I don’t need a band saw. I do all my resawing with karate chops.

Try using a table saw.

I don’t know of a table saw that’ll do 6 1/2” wide resawing, but I suppose you could cut it most of the way through on both sides and then handsaw the middle out. But then you’d have to plain it smooth.

I’d stick with my initial idea…

Are there any tech / vocational schools in your area ? Lumber yards , mills , etc. that may be able to do it for you ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Have your say...
