    Log to marking gauge

    A brief progression of a red oak log turned into a marking gauge. Manual sawing of a small 3"x3"x18" block rough hewn by hatchet from a pretty well bug infested log. Tough work, but I\'m surprised it went as smoothly as it did after learning to sharpen and wax the saw.

    Resaw help

Most of the boards (13 total) are 8" to 12" wide and 8' long surfaced on both sides and pretty straight. They are all 1.5" thick so ideally if split down the middle the resulting boards...

    Bandsaw resaw fence

    Seeing Bruce's thread about making the jig to flatten his blade screw reminded me of what I've been doing this week. And yes, Scott is right. A jig needn't be expensive to work. I had to do some re-saw of 8" & 12" ash on short pieces. To further complicate things, the re-saw had to be tapered...

    Question: Resaw fences

    I am curious to know what you think about the 2 prevalent fence styles used for resawing on the bandsaw, the full fence vs. the single contact point "guide". Which do you use / prefer? Why? My thoughts are that the full fence, carefully set up and corrected for any drift, would produce better...

    Resaw Fence

    Having just purchased a new band saw and after reading "Copy of Bill Clemons bandsaw fence" by eyekode, I built my own fence. I basically replicated eyekode's rails and table extension. Here is my table, hickory rails with a red oak table extension. Since I regularly wax my cast iron table...

    Any reason _not_ to use a resaw blade?

    I took advantage of the Laguna deal that was posted here (thanks, BTW!) to get a 1" carbide resaw blade for my bandsaw. I've got a few Timberwolf 5/8" steel blades. As I hoped / expected, the resaw blade cuts like the proverbial hot knife in butter. In addition, it leaves a much smoother surface...

    I'm bidding on a piece of maple on eBay which, if I win, I want to resaw. Problem is, the piece is about 9" wide and my little Griz can only resaw 6" max, and it complains about that.
