Problems with wood bowing after resawing
I have justed started resawing. In the past, I did most of the resawing on a 12 inch craftsman, but wanted to get serious so I bought the 14 inch Laguna.
For a current project I resawed a 8/4, 10 wide, 48 inch long piece of red oak to use as bookend for the bench seat. I used the 1- 1/4″ laguna resaw blade and everything worked great, but the two pieces bowed out ward from the blade. Why did this happen? Does the grain of the wood impact the resulting resawed pieces? Someone told me it was moisture. I bought the wood from the hardwood shop I use all the time.
