Against the Grain: Bone-Headed Bandsawing
Resawing is one of those tricky woodworking skills that seems rather black and white when you first see it done. Fact is however, it requires proper preparation and set-up, and the subject in this latest installment of our Against the Grain game obviously hasn't done his homework.
Actually, the fellow in the photo is my Fine Homebuilding colleague, Patrick McCombe, and in reality-he does know what he's doing-but I thought it'd be amusing to put him in the position of a woodworking newbie. Identify the five woodworking no-no's in this photograph and you've won the game!
New Zoom Function
You'll notice in this new Against the Grain game that we've added a new zoom function to help you hunt for clues as to what's wrong in this shop scene. Simply move the slider left or right, and navigate around the photograph using the scroll bars at the bottom and right side of the image.

But wait, there's more! Hidden in this image is a sixth, previously unmentioned mistake. Identify it correctly, and I'll send you a copy of Fox Chapel Publishing's book, Built to Last: Outdoor Furniture. Just in time for Spring and the return of patio furniture. The first person to ID that sixth mistake takes home the book.
