Cutting & Milling Strips

I bought cedar & pine at Beard Lumber Company, bought too much, and got gypped. The price of cedar has gone through the roof, due to wildfires in California (kind of reminds me of the way oil goes up when "anything" happens) and I paid a small fortune. Ah well, shake it off...
The resawing went about the way it usually does, except that I discovered a few things shaky about my setup. I made two hefty new feather boards. I believe that I can reliably make two 3/16 boards out of a 3/4" board without screwing it up too much.
 Planing is tedious, but effective. I will actually try to save the leftover planed boards for the (inevitable) next build.
