Have you tried resawing veneers on the saw
you have?

I ask because 6” wide is plenty. And it’s easier
imo. There are applications where resawing
wide boards makes sense, but you may find
resawing wide veneers real finicky work. Any
error in fence/blade parallelism is doubled when
you go from 6” wide to 12” wide. That means
that if you’re off just a little, you’ll get fewer
veneers from a given board because they will
come off the saw wider at one edge than the

Big band saws are nice to have and fun to use
of course. It’s just that in my experience wide
precision resawing is not fun. More like stressful.
