Using a specific Resawing Frame Saw makes the process of resawing fast and efficient without the capacity limitations that come with the average bandsaw.
Whether you need to turn a thicker board into 2 thinner boards for a beautiful bookmatched panel or you are making thinly sawn veneer to stretch the use of a rare or unique piece lumber, you need to resaw it.
The woodworker can do this with a bandsaw but like any power tool, there are limits on the capacity of the tool and large boards can be near impossible without an industrial sized machine with a massive footprint and even more massive price tag. Not to mention all the dust and the noise that so many of the hand tool devoted woodworkers are trying to avoid in the first place.
Resawing by hand can be done with any hand saw but it does NOT have to be a slow and tiring process. But when you use the right tool for the job, you will be amazed at the accuracy and the speed with which you can be cutting shop made veneers 1/8" thick or slicing up 12", 24' or even 36" wide boards into stunning panels with perfect grain and color match.
