Not sure I follow… say you would like to “re-saw” a log? If it s a log it has never been sawed to begin with so how is it a re-saw? Okay, lets forget about saw/re-saw for a minute…maybe I am not reading this right, but if a 14” bandsaw was all it took to make lumber from logs…I would have never bought a Hud-Son sawmill.

I think when he says logs he’s referring to the 6-12 inch rounds that he can put through his BS.

As others might tell you, I believe that the general rule of thumb is that anything cut to less than 1/2 it’s thickness will warp badly. For instance, if you resaw your log into 2” (8/4) slices as Loren said above and sticker them until they are dry you can then resaw them into 1” boards to mill down to 3/4” stock then either use them immediately or sticker them until time to use them. If you sliced off a 1/4” piece from an 8/4 board it will curl like a potato chip.
