A February warm spell has warmed the shop the past few days. The temperature is just about ideal for resawing lumber. My previous post about resawing was all about getting it figured out. Since then, I’ve replaced the blade in the frame saw with a blade cut from an old Disston rip saw. Along the way, I learned saw sharpening enough to make this particular blade a wicked sharp saw. It has now been tuned enough to make straight cutting easy and accurate.
I’m working my way through a stack of 4/4 live edge white cedar. The first full board was 8 inches wide 14 feet long. The current board is 10.5 inches wide and 16 feet long. With the current stack of lumber, it will be resaw, resaw, resaw, for quite a while.
