« Part 5: coffee table - cafe table - low back - chair - rocking chair Part 6 of In the wood shop today series Part 7: Applying oil/resin finish to curly walnut trestle coffee table »

I’m using my band saw to re-saw a 2’’ thick piece of Canadian black walnut into 2 boards that I will glue up for the top of a coffee table top.

This is a live edge board that measures about 17’’ at it’s widest part, I’ve already squared up the board using my planer due to the boards width.

I plan on using the resawn boards for a solid walnut maloof inspired coffee table, I’ve never done this coffee table base with a live edge so I’m really interested in see how this turns out.

Thanks again for stopping in to have a look, hope you enjoy the video.

I’ve got severe bandsaw envy now.

That is a pretty impressive bandsaw and resaw capacity.

Interesting video, thanks for showing. What are your blade details?, make, width, teeth arrangement, etc?

This cut I’m using a 1/2’’ 3tpi blade from R&D Bandsaw which is local to me in Brampton, Ontario. There blades stay sharp for a long time, seem to never break and are not expensive. Oh and made in Canada (-:
