In the above video you’ll see a fantastic tutorial by two Colonial Williamsburg craftsmen Edward Wright and Bill Pavlak. They were kind enough to share a tutorial on how to resaw wide boards using a large frame saw. I filmed this skill tutorial (and several other skill tutorials) inside the 18th Century Anthony Hay Cabinet Shop at Colonial Williamsburg.

I’m glad you enjoyed it Matt!
Very nice. Nice to know about the wind in the blade. Wouldn’t have given it much thought. They do excelent work.
Yeah, I found that very fascinating too Jason. Thanks for watching.
Cool! I have one of these saw blades and mounting hardware from Isaac Smith at Blackburn Tools. I really have to build a frame for it and put it to use! I tried his out on a 2′ length of 8″ wide mahogany, it did a great job.
