Making Thin Lumber and Veneer Out of Ordinary Boards
Resawing is cutting a board into two or more thinner boards. A resaw cut runs all the way through the width of a board, as opposed to ordinary rip cuts where the blade needs only to cut through the stock's thickness.

The bandsaw is the ideal tool for this job. Not only is it much safer than a circular saw for this kind of operation, its narrow kerf and vertical blade movement make it extremely efficient, wasting minimal wood and cutting easily and quickly even if you're using a fairly low-power bandsaw.

Being able to resaw lumber to any thickness opens up a whole new set of woodworking possibilities. Resawing can be easy – all you have to do is cut VERY straight lines. That said, many woodworkers find resawing to be a frustrating challenge. If this is your situation, we have some solutions for you.

First, we have condensed the keys to resawing success into 8 simple tips for you to read here and apply in your shop.

Second, we offer the missing ingredient that many people have been lacking for getting consistent resawing results. We're talking about our legendary Wood Slicer resawing bandsaw blade that cuts smoother, works faster, sounds quieter, stays sharp longer, and cuts so accurately that you can even make your own veneer.

Wood Slicer Resawing Blades

Wood Slicer Resawing Blade I just received my order and I want to kick myself for not ordering sooner. I have seen your ads about your Wood Slicer band saw blades for several years but always bought local until I finally got tired of breaking blades and smoking cuts.

I installed the 1/2 inch Wood Slicer on my band saw earlier today and fell in love with my saw again. I can now "slice" through my wood like a knife through gravy. I will tell all my woodworking friends to use your blades.

10" Benchtop Bandsaw

We've sold well over a thousand of this exceptional value from Rikon making it our all-time best-selling bandsaw ever. That's because it has proven itself as a solid performer that's also very affordable. After we installed one of our Wood Slicer resawing blades on our demo model, we were able to resaw uniform slices 1/64" thick off the length of a 4x4. We highly recommend it as your first bandsaw bought on a budget, or as a second bandsaw that that lets you avoid having to constantly swap blades.
