Setting Up for Resawing

How to get a straight, smooth cut.

When you’re resawing a big, wide board, a lumpy, wandering cut can unexpectedly reduce the thickness of the pieces coming off the saw. We’ll show you how using an oversize guide block will keep the blade cutting in an unbroken straight line.

  2. My Chinese, Japanese or whichever ….ese bandsaw Harbor Freight sells couldn’t cut a straight line in soft butter. I sure would like a new Laguna LT14 3000. Good DVD, I picked up some useful info.

      • Videos have not been fixed. Jumpy like an old movie and very irritating.

  8. I sure enjoy the videos he has produced! Thanks so much for another good one. I will tell you that one of the side benefits I get from you is to be patient with all you do in the shop. SLOW DOWN! Enjoy what you are doing and take care in your cuts,
