what makes a rough (fury) TS rip in spruce vs. smooth


I made 21 pcs of 15/16" outside trim (L) w/ a 1/4" roundover, & 21 pieces of inside 1/2" x 1/2" trim (}) w/ a 3/8" bead bit, all on a TS out of 7 spruce 2x4s. Why did some lengths of rip cuts on the TS end up very furry, as most weren't.
BTW, when is a rip a rip and a re-saw a resaw?

Ripping against the grain can do this as well as the blard not bein gperfectly straight.

Leave the kerf out of the equation. If you make a 1x8 into 2, 1/2x8's you resawed. If you make a 1x8 in to 2, 1x4's you ripped.

this is a matter of definition, so: If you saw the thickness, its a resaw, & If you saw the width, its a rip ?

and if you saw to length its a crosscut. (though technically a rip is along the grain while a crosscut is across it.) Not sure how this applies to plywood. I guess you can use the same terms with plywood if the faces align with each other.
P.S. Stay away from those furious cuts! They never turn out right.

Probably because you were close to the heart, where the juvenile wood does that. Check Hoadley or http://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/ search on it.

There are many factors. For example, if you take several samples of wood from the same stock you'll find different moisture content. Make sure your stock is square and always flat against the fence when ripping. Do a complete TS tuneup. Resaw refers to making thinner pieces of wood out of thicker pieces.

so a cut in one direction (w/r/t something determinable) could have been a resaw before, but now a rip and vice versa. So it all depends on which end of the stick you get, no.
