whether that be into smaller pieces and flipped, which will undoubtedly create more waste.

It will create more waste.

It's taken me a lot of years to get over it.

Every time I tried to save a dime on wood by buying just enough it's bit me in the pants.

The difference between a good stripper and a great stripper is the wood.

I select for the most beautiful wood I can find and by looking at the broad face of the board so I can get an idea of how my boat will look.

When my first concern is money and my second concern is money, the boat won't look great.

Now if you can get hold of one of the Tenryu 1/16" kerf ripping blades like the 7-1/4" one in my video, you can squeeze a bit more out of a board. I think Nick posted a link to the 10" version he uses.

Is this it? - http://tenryusawblades.com/product.php?productid=17805&cat=354&page=1

You'd have to make your own riving knife to go with like I did out of 1/16" stainless plate.
