I'm making a dresser and would like to borrow (or rent) use of a bandsaw to
resaw some 8" wide pine for drawer sides. I can't bring myself to turn 40%
of the wood into chips from my planer. I put an ad on Wichita KS
Craigslist. If you'd consider this please contact me thru the craigslist
ad. I have most other major power tools except a bandsaw.
Depending upon the size and power of your table saw, it can be possible
to make two passes on opposite edges with the blade at full height,
finish the cut with a hand saw, minor cleanup with a plane or sander.
The below is not that wide, but the process is the same, and I've
routinely done wider wide stock years back when I didn't have a band
saw. Once those two kerfs are cut, even wider stock resaws easily with
a better hand saw than the one pictured below:
If you don't get any response from an individual, give Holtzen Woodwork
on N Osage downtown a call. They're a relatively small architectural
millwork shop, family owned/operated that are very easy to deal with.
No, agreed w/ just a 10" saw plus even w/ a narrow kerf blade there's a
fair amount of wasted. Doable and if only need a piece or two, ok, but
not preferred choice, agreed.
Holtzen ran the siding for the barn refurb for me some years ago when
nobody else wanted to bother with it. Needed 3-1/4" wide WWPA 106
profile that seems to be a non-item any longer as nobody has it stock
material under 5-3/8" any more. Need the 3" to match/piece in existing.
They also made me the bed mould for the trim around the outside roof
eaves that was missing...
