+1 on feeding too fast & dull blade.

Rule of thumb for resawing is wider blade and less teeth per inch. My personal experience with 14” band saws shows not all with take a 3/4” or wider blade even though manufacturer specs says they will. Common blade width for 14” BS resawing or cutting big stock is ¼”, 3/8” and 1/2” with 3 or 4 hook or skip tooth. Some blade companies offer highbred combination blasé sets which work as well.
