Learning to resaw lumber can take your woodworking to the next level — and save you money along the way.
It’s the secret to perfect grain wrapping and bookmatched boards, and helps keep expensive wood out of the dust collector.
But what exactly does it mean to resaw lumber?
Think of it like a rip cut, but instead of cutting a board through its width, you cut through its thickness.
The result is two thinner boards of the same width.
Resawing is a skill every woodworker should be familiar with, and I'm going to walk you through the whole process — whether you have a band saw or not.
