Splitting turned newel post in half lengthwise.
How would I use my bandsaw to split turned newel posts in half lengthwise? I’m guessing that I have an advantage in that on either end, they’re square (not turned) and the same dimensions on each end. I’ll need for the finished product to lay flat when glued to a flat surface after splitting.
I found some beautiful, aged newel posts with layers of multicolored paint partially removed resulting in a great shabby-chic surface. I create picture frames for old-west style paintings and these would be great to dress up a frame on either side of the art.
