It is a work of art Gramps. I have used it already and it cuts like a dream. I attempted to resaw with it and I was doing ok, but I really need to pick up a kerfing plane to kerf the board edges before I resaw, it's hard to keep it from drifting from just a pencil line. I would not use it mainly for resawing, there is another saw I would like acquire for that based on the Roubo veneer saw, which is waaay more apt to be friendlier for resawing.

Saw below is not my saw, just one I'd like to make for resawing.



But my saw pictured, cuts very accurately, I tried it on a 4/4 poplar and it was easy to control and stay on the line. Not too mention, that pistol grip handle, feel oh so good!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
