I asked a related question months earlier in this NG regarding hiring a
portable bandmill to do this job, and the responses were very helpful.
However, I'm leaning toward getting a large vertical bandsaw to do the
job myself in small batches to minimize waste. Long planks would be cut
into more manageable lengths as needed prior to resawing.
My material is all 3.5-9.5" thick, 11.5" wide, and very hard/dense. I
need to resaw in order to make panels for cabinets etc. Does anyone
have any experience with this kind of thing?
