I need to find a mill or the like to resaw some 8/4 Cherry. 6" to 12"
wide. 6' to 12' long. Tried the usual such as Home Depot, Lowes and
such. One place in Phoenix referred me to two places here in Tucson
but neither place was interested in doing any resawing.
So any suggestions will be appreciated.
Check with your local tree cutting services. They may know of a
nearby sawmill, even if it's a personal one.
Or start here:
Tell me son, how do you propose to hold that 12 foot long timber the
size of a tree while you feed it through your bandsaw. Do you have an
understanding of how heavy that size beam would be?? It is NOT the
height it is the Length plus the height.
Now if you happen to have a twelve foot roller table both input side and
the output side, then I am sure that you could do it. But how many of us
has such equipment in our shops.
These things are do-able with roller stands and a helper. The problem
is, this stuff is rough and 10-12 inches wide, so his yield suffers.
Bob and I just resawed a 2x10x6 footer+ and the second board resawn
was about 4 feet long. It ran about 2-3 inches a minute. The saw
_was_ screaming some.
I have two of them and the use of several more but the cut it too wide/
tall to manage. I would like to keep the keep manageable so as to get
3 boards/slabs from each board. And also to keep the after cutting
planning more manageable.
Thanks for the response.

Or call the sawmill manufacturers to see if they can refer you to one
of their buyers. Some guys want referrals to help defer the cost of
