Cutting up old boards
« on: December 04, 2020, 08:27:59 AM »
Anyone have experience with chopping up old decks?  Looking for advice on what's the best type of saw & blade to use.  I'm just looking to make some squares, sort of along the lines of what Taylor Nawrocki has been doing lately.  Is a chop-saw the best tool for this?  What type of blade, etc?

9" Band saw. you can get a new one for $100, you might be able to find a used on for free. you want a blade for hard wood so 10 to 14 TPI.

Jig saw and the right hand saw works too but the right hand saw is more expensive than the band saw. Jig saws are easier to find but the struggle is real

I pretty much just use my table saw. Made a cross cut sled to cut the nose and tails of. Then you can rip the board into which ever width you feel you need. You can make some tiles pretty well with just a miter chop saw, but the table saw is the way to go. They aint cheap though, but if you want to get into making shit with old boards, its worth it.
