    I gotta say, this channel more than earns my dollars. Easy to view. Easy to use. Great content. If some is too beginner, I still find value. Thanks you all!

    George, I have a 14" Band saw and recently put a 6" extension on it to be able to re-saw wood so I can do some bookend matching. I am using 2" x 8" red oak half sawed and trying to saw it down the middle to make some 1" x 8" planks. However the initial flat planks have so much internal stress in the wood I am having a terrible time sawing the wood. Once sawed the planks are both cupped and bent. Wondering what my options are. Is there any way to flatten this wood other than to do more cuts and then jointing. Do you think steaming and then weighting them to dry would help here? A video of this problem would be wonderful.

    Which bandsaw blade is he using on this? I googled “low tension band saw blades” and nothing says low tension

    George, in another re-sawing clip I saw a little bit ago, you suggested to 'always mark your cut line when re-sawing', but I notice on this one, there is no mark visible... any reason for this?
