Good evening sawmill brothers,
Recommendation please for re-sawing cured hardwood slabs like oak and walnut. Primary goal to flatten the surface for finish work.  I run an LT27.  This is high value wood so prepared to accept pain of expensive blade.

If your goal is to flatten the wood why not use a jointer and a planer?

Unless the blade is in the wood all the time, when running on top of dry wood it has a tendency to skip across the surface and not give an even cut.

Good point on limitations of a bandsaw flattening cured hardwood slab

This is an attempt to get the major
Cup and twist out.  Still have to finish with a jointer plane

I do it on the sawmill.  You have to shim the slab, then go slow with a very sharp blade.  Having more horsepower also helps.
