Resawing

Question

How do you set up a resaw on a bandsaw for very thin (less than 1/16″) pieces? Or should it be, can you? – John Pitrone

Answer

Guy Senneville replies: Make sure your bandsaw is tuned to perfection. Use a sharp blade and a tall fence. Tension the blade properly. Set your fence for drift. Make sure your stock is dead square at least on one edge and one side. A light pass in the jointer between each pass will ensure you have a smooth side to every veneer slice.
