I’ve decided instead of randomly trying to go through and learn woodworking I’m going to do the exercises/shop projects in Jim Tolpin’s “The New Traditional Woodworker”.
This leads to a question or two or three:
Possibly the first and definitely the second project involve resawing stock down to a thinner dimension. 1/2” for the first and 1/4” for second.
I don’t have a bandsaw and really don’t want one. Don’t one a two-man resawing saws either. The only rip saw (besides a combo filed back saw) I have is the 26” Disston D8 5.5 PPI that folks helped me get not long ago. Don’t think that would help much with this project.
Would a smaller Pannel rip saw with a higher PPI help me resaw for this project?
If yes, what would saw would you suggest? Haven’t noticed anything on the bay but not sure what to look for. I know LN offers a 20inch Pannel. Wenzloff has a 20inch kit. Wenzloff also shows a 16 or 18 inch option on his Disston Pannel saw repros.
If no, what would you suggest I do?
