Resawing with a circular saw

The original boards were ~10' cut to ~8' leaving 2' sections. Being both coincidence and planning, this gave me sections the width of the bench for the bottom shelf, the parallel bars, and the wheel supports.

Currently I have no access to a band saw, so I used my circular saw to re-saw the pieces. Was a little rough, but actually better and safer than I thought it would be.

I've left the pieces un-dressed; to allow the wood to continue to dry, and because the planner blades need a sharpen.


  1. How did you resaw using a circular saw. I was thinking of trying the same thing since I don't have a band saw nor a table saw. I was thinking of creating a jig to hold the wood on edge and provide a surface to stabilize the saw. I would cut about half way through and then flip the board, similar to how you'd resaw with a table saw. I would love to see a photo and hear a description of how you did it.

  2. One measure of tool power on corded models is amperage draw, a figure you’ll find stamped on the nameplate of every power tool. If I were recommending a saw to a friend, I’d choose from machines that draw at least 10 amps of current, and preferably closer to 15.

  3. These are actually wonderful some ideas in the blog. You have touched good quality points here. In whatever way continue writing.
