A supplementary table aids and is a must for cutting logs. Re-sawing also requires a barrier. Some band saw manufacturers have barriers available for their saws ($75 to $100), or you can make one. The barrier should be high enough to support the material you’re cutting and adjustable to compensate for blade drift.
Band saw Re-sawing
Cut logs into‐lumber, create narrow boards from thick and cut your personal veneer. Maybe you need to cut 3/4-in.-dense material down to 3/8 in., and create veneer from that one valuable figured board. Or maybe you need to get useful lumber from a gorgeous piece of wood in your firewood pile. The talent that creates this possible is re sawing. Although it fair plain baffles some woodworkers, once you receive the hang of it, you’ll be surprised at what you can do, even on a little band saw. Here’s what you need to create it all happen: blade selection, shop-made jigs, setup and cutting tips.
Usage the widest blade your saw can handle:
1/2 in. or 3/4 in. for most saws. Wide blades create it simple to cut a straight line. Look for a blade with four teeth per inch and a hook tooth pattern. The curved teeth give you great crops (the valleys among the teeth) to clear the sawdust from the cut and help the blade track cool. Heat is a blade’s biggest enemy. Re-sawing thrusts your saw’s motor to the max, so create it simple on your saw through continuously using a sharp blade.
