Folks, keen to hear thoughts.or tips on how I can make the most use of the lumber I purchased. I need 1” and 3/4” thick boards for the Andirondack chairs project I’m working on. Initially I was hoping to buy 4/4 and 5/4 boards for my 3/4” and 1” thick boards respectively. Afetr a good time searching,I find that most lumber suppliers only offer 4/4 and 8/4 thick Spanish cedar.
I’m going to try to get 1” and 3/4” boards out of these 8/4 boards, by resawing and milling. I realize it is cutting it fine…..pardon the pun. Does anyone have thoughts or tips for me?
Many thanks in advance.
