how to split wide wood planks?
in process of designing a fence and driveway gate.
i have a lot of redwood planks 1x12x6 that could be used.
but rather than using the planks in 12" widths set vertically, i'd like to split it into 2" or 3" and 6" widths and set it horizontally along a metal frame (either chain link or steel)
i do like the roughness of grape vine stakes. i'm wondering if i can take an ax or other manual splitting tool to cut into the smaller planks. or use a table saw???
