Making a book matched live edge canadian black walnut coffee table

I’m using my band saw to re-saw a 2’’ thick piece of Canadian black walnut into 2 boards. What resaw means is that you cut a board typically on a bandsaw, that has already been made into rough lumber into 2 or more boards of a thinner thickness. By doing this i'm able to book match the grain for a table top or drawers.

This is a live edge board that measures about 17’’ at it’s widest part, I’ve already squared up the board which means taking a rough cut piece of wood that may have a cup or twist and no 90 degree edges.

I then set the fence on my bandsaw to the width I want, clamp on my feather board that helps hold the board square to the fence.

I plan on using the resawn boards for a solid walnut maloof inspired coffee table, I’ve never done this coffee table base with a live edge so I’m really excited to see how this turns out.

I'm using a 1/2'' 3tpi bandsaw blade from:
