Re: Resawing poplar for drawer sides question???

Hey Barry,
First of all, that's probably a darned good saw you have there. I took classes from a guy who specialized in bent laminations and that's the saw and blade he used. He would cut very thin strips by the hundreds and they came out smooth and flat. Some said his saw was underpowered, but I watched him cut maple like it was butter. In any case, get some practice on that saw before you start cutting your chosen wood.

And Bill Tindall was right, if a piece doesn't come out perfect, it still can be useful. The backs of some of my drawers are good examples.
