yes, the saw in that pic is a bit under powered. It was pulling hard but just dust coming out. I put a bigger saw on with full complement teeth and it brought chips. The thing about cutting straight across grain it comes out hard. Saws are made to crosscut. Even lengthwise you can do ok with long shavings, but cutting in this fashion you have to sharpen the teeth a bit different and have the power to make it pull.
