The variety of tools that we use to make my v. of furniture is varied.  From computers to design the tables in 3d to screwdrivers and hammers (sometimes to dig the rotten parts out).  Here we are using somewhat more traditional means of cutting these thick walnut rounds.  It's a Hendrick panel saw.  The blade is 16", the round if over 5" thick.  Hendrick designed the first panel saw on the market several decades ago.  It's really good to see them able to continue their business.  They make awesome products for the woodworking industry.  And their customer support for their equipment (even though I purchased it second hand) is second to none. 

Typically, these panel saws are seen in the cabinet industry, to cut thin panels (of all things).
