When I resaw with my TK blade I get these thin offcuts. My friend uses then as fodder for his thinness sander and then makes scale furniture from it. He uses a model makers 4” Proxxon Bench Saw blade with a 1/16” kerf.

For those that claim accuracy & repeatability do not matter and laugh at those of us who have the nerve to use digital gauges on wood, look at the pics.

Between my TK saw and his use of my scraps our stock yeild is as close to 100% as you can get.

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?

These are awesome. What are the dimensions? They look like full size pieces until you get something else to give them perspective.

They’re around 4” in the largest dimension. Most of the stock is 1/8” or 1/16” . . .

The fool the eye scaling is intentional LOL Thank you for the complement!

Very nice use of ’ scrap ‘
Btw – I use a digital caliper daily in my wood shop
