I'm working up bid on wine bottle boxes. I need a source of 1/2 or 3/8 inch
wood, 4 1/4" wide. I'm in northern Idaho so need a supplier in the Inland
Northwest. I've tried Spokane near where I work but no luck. I really
don't want to buy 3/4" then plane half of it away and I can't afford a resaw
Maybe my saw wasn't set up well enough, but I tried this on jarrah and
about 5' into the cut, my saw blade started to smoke and I had to
abort due to a glowing saw blade :(
Could the toughness of the wood have anything to do with this? Or was
it just a badly set up saw with too much rubbing on the disk?
I've done it without incident many times, but the suggestion below is
excellent. When resawing on the table saw, I use a push block/stick
on top of the piece which stabilizes the piece(s) laterally, and a
push stick on the side to keep it flat against the fence. As always,
don't even think of standing directly behind the piece.
