Resawing Duplicate Parts

Figure 14-32. To resaw duplicates: (A) Draw the pattern on a thick piece of stock. (B) Cut out the shape and then resaw it to make the duplicates.

Because the bandsaw cuts easily through thick stock, it's possible to preshape a block of wood and then resaw it into separate pieces that will be duplicates of the original design.

The shape of the piece that is needed is drawn on one surface of the thick stock. The shape is then cut out on the bansaw. The shaped piece is then resawn (Figure 14-32). Follow the procedures for "Resawing" earlier in this chapter. It's generally a good idea to leave enough extra stock so that you can sand the resawn pieces smooth.
