They were "off falls" from the primary saved piece, but I was impressed how thin they were, less than 1/16". They were a bit rough because of the blade set.
Yes, in spite of my personal amateurish wood working skills, it is indeed impressive how thin a finely tuned bandsaw can slice a board. I've attached a few photos of an 8"x17" walnut slice for your perusal.
I've also attached a drawing showing the actual thickness of the perimeter of this walnut slice. While wanting to achieve a thickness of 1/16" (0.0875"), the results were less than stellar. Since I have nothing to compare these results to, they may be in the 'ball park' (or not!) as these things go.
Here's the big question for me...how big are the pieces and can they be resawn from a wide plank/board.
If they are 6" or 7" wide then I think you can probably do it. You bandsaw would have to be tuned perfectly and a fine set blade used rather than the typical 3 TPI resaw blade.
It would seem that if you glued them to a thin substrate like 1/8" plywood you could then plane the by hand to get a smooth surface or just just a ROS with progressively finer grits.
Without know the exact application, it's difficult to know the size, the joinery, the thickness etc. .....
I've been using a Wood Slicer for these cuts, but that is going to change in the very near future. I have a few Timber Wolf 3/4" AS-S on order and which were reviewed here
I've used Wood Slicer's for a number of years, but do so reluctantly. I think they are over-priced and do not hold their edge as well as one would expect after having paid a premium price of nearly double that of other comparable blades. In the past I have retuned several due to poor weld alignment. Having disclosed all of this, I am ready to move on to a different brand of band saw blades.
Hopefully, the Timber Wolf's will git 'er done for me. I have used TW blades in the past, but in narrower width's and not for the precision work I am now trying to achieve. I am very anxious to try these blades.
I recently returned some Olson blades that claimed a 0.025" thickness, but were 0.030" on average.
There are a lot of variables in this bandsaw slicing business and I have much to learn.
