I have a Milescraft DT Tandem featherboard for my Laguna 18BX bandsaw and it may work for your application. With the wider boards, using a push block on the upper part of the board could help maintain more secure contact to the upper portion of the bandsaw fence.

I am curious what saw and blade you will be using and what you will be using the boards for once they are resawn (joining and planing may result in a fairly thin board if you will be doing that also)?

It might be worthwhile to consider the end product and if you will need a 15’ section of finished product. Shortening the length to something more manageable could make the process easier if you don’t need an 8-15’ long board.

I have an old one-room schoolhouse with an addition that was built for farm critters and will be dismantling the building to reclaim the wood (much of which is a full 8/4 thick, along with thinner boards used as siding. Some of the wood is relatively straight and true, though other pieces can have some deflection in various directions. While each piece will be treated individually in regard to how it may best be used, I am considering jointing some of the boards, running the flat side along the bandsaw fence while resawing, then further jointing / planing as needed. With a variety of the boards, I plan to use the more natural look of the more rough sawn lumber and likewise it won’t be processed as much.

I am interested in your thoughts and ideas and please don’t hesitate to share your insight and experiences along the way.
