A resaw to put meer mortal efforts to shame

Check out this picture of Chris Vesper with a veneer resawn from a plank of Australian Red Cedar.  The veneer is between 1mm and 1.2mm thick, so also very accurate.  The resulting flexibility gives one all sorts of ideas for potential products. Read the original article here.

Resaw!

The blade in this case was apparently a 2TPI Tungsten Carbide Tipped blade. Unfortunately, according to Chris, you need a bandsaw with good diameter wheels (>2′) to minimise fatigue-initiated breakages.

Thanks to Chris for permission to use this photo – it was too impressive a resaw not to feature it here as well!
