high pressure water cutter for wood

will there ever be a high pressure water cutter for the average woodworker
maybe someone already makes them
the paper industry uses this to cut paper
this would really cut down on sawdust
okay now you have to deal with a dust slurry but better than breathing it in
wonder how big the kerf is

Woodworkers go to some grief to dry wood, why would they want to get finished wood wet again? If you're worried about dust, collect it. Saws aren't the real culprit, IMO.

Drying green wood that woodworkers go "to some grief" to obtain is totally and completely different than drying wood that gets a little surface dampness from a water jet. One takes a year an inch, one takes an hour in the sun.

Some wood, like Red Oak, soaks up water really well. You can work with wet wood, I'll keep mine dry. It's a solution looking for a problem.

"Really well" is meaningless. Take a 20 lb chunk of dry, red oak, soak it in water for 20 minutes and then check its weight. You will see it really didn't soak up much water at all, really.

If you think using a water jet on wood will create a piece of wet wood at all comparable to the green wood "Woodworkers go to some grief to dry" then you are a problem looking for a place to happen. Those that own a water jet and plan on cutting wood with it will not have a problem with wet wood, other than some minor surface dampness.
