Resawing Thick Stock with a Tablesaw

May 20, 20200 Comments

I have a bandsaw capable of resawing most of the stock I work with, but occasionally I have pieces wider than it can accommodate.

While I have an auxiliary extension for the bandsaw to increase its capacity, it’s time consuming to install, and even then it’s sometimes more of a hassle than it’s worth.

In about the same time it would take to set everything up (even with the extension already in position) I can easily resaw thick material using a combination of my tablesaw and a rip-style handsaw.

I’ve had mixed results using this combination before, but here’s how I do it now, and given the great results I’m getting, I’ll continue to use going forward.
