At the stage where i now need to make my strips of cherry for my table.
Can do it on table saw but....
Can do it on bandsaw..
Strips to be cut come from pieces of scrap cherry all milled up to around 2 inch wide, approx 3/4 thick and various lengths from 18" through to several feet.
Normally when we think of "strips" one would be thinking in terms of cutting strips off the 3/4" face.
I want mine off the 2" wide face and about 3/16 or a tad more thick.
My thought is to resaw on bandsaw given saw blade thickness will consume around 1/8" of wood for each cut from my approx 3/4 thickness.
Also even using a strip cutting jig on table saw leaves very little thickness of wood to pass between fence and blade.
What would be your choice and why, any other suggestions for cutting them?
Thinking of making a clean up pass on my planner after each rip cut on bandsaw so one side of strip is definitely flat but that could be a enormous time consumer given need to secure wood on some base for planning given how thin it would be getting after each resaw of a strip, so that may go by the wayside.
Comments and suggestions welcome, I am trying to think this one through without the usual "act in haste and repenting at my leisure" (my Dads favorite advise) lol.
