Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw resaw height

Hey Phoenix Woodworkers,

I have a mesquite log that I want to cut rounds from. I have a 14” bandsaw that doesn’t have the space to cut the log. The log is just over 12” in diameter.

Does anyone out here have a bandsaw that can accomplish that task? Obviously I’d be very willing to pay for the service.

Help, the wife is asking and I need to get this done!!!

You might try Edgewood sawmill at 1663 E Baseline.

Sorry, I can not help.

If in a hurry, might want to give your closest Woodworker's Source a phone call?
They offer simple wood shop services (saw cut, straight edge, thickness planing, drum sanding, etc) by the hour, with 1/2 hour minimum. It is not self help, they do the work for you.
Have used them a couple times for drum sanding large panels, and once to re-saw figured wood for 12” book match door panels. When I need help from their larger equipment, usually just visit with my problem wood and the work is done while I wait. Weekends can get busy, and might have to wait a while, or leave it.
I doubt there is a wait rght now, summer time things are slow, especially during week.
Best Luck.
