I hope I picked the right place to post this. I am very new to wood working and I have decided to try and teach myself to some basic joinery by making small wooden boxes from the pallet that my band saw was delivered on. I think the pallet is made of white oak, but I am not sure. At first I was going take it a part by pulling the nails, but the wood was in pretty bad shape where it was nailed, so I finally cut it apart with an old jigsaw. Now I have some smaller pieces of rough lumber that I think is too thick for what I want to do. So I need some guidance in what steps I need to take to prepare the wood. Here is what I am guessing:
1. Resaw the wood to 1/2 its current thickness using the band saw
Does any of this make sense?
Thanks for all and any help
