What Is a Resawing machine 30 August 2019

Resaw Definition: Resawing is the method of cutting the timber along the path of the grain, reducing it to smaller parts or making veneers. In easy terms, to get two thicker plates, you split the thickness of the wood.

Resawing is performed for milling logs into the wood, reducing the wood thickness and producing veneers.

Below are some advantages of Re-Sawing

Logs into Lumber:

Sawmills use big broad blades to cut logs through resawing into boards and planks. If on your band saw you cut a log into lumber, begin with a flat face on the side that will ride on the table. This is to prevent log roll-off.


Two wood logs will have different patterns of grain. Resawing produces two slabs that can be book-matched with the almost identical grain. Also, the inside of the sliced surface may show more interesting grain patterns and colours.


A wooden veneer is a thin layer of timber-cut wood. They usually have a thickness of 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm or less than 1/8-inch. Veneers of wood are cut through resawing. Veneers are commonly used in the production and decoration of furniture

Save Money:

Exotic forests are costly. You can resaw the wood on a bandsaw or a table saw to slice the wood into two pieces if you don't want to use the full thickness of the standard size lumber.
