This is just a simple guide made from a leftover laminate floor board with a non slip mat (bought for less than 5 euros) glued to the underneath. It works a charm just put in place and cut away , with no movement.

What material is the non-slip mat? Is it like a router mat on a bench to keep workpiece from slipping? This seem like a great idea.

Thanks for sharing.

Great simple solution! All it takes is the need for a tool/device and starting the ol’ imagination up! A very good idea.

I’d have to clamp it just to be sure if wood was expensive.

Good project. I need to replace mine, but will apply Wallmart shelf-liner & see how that works.

Nice one Eoin. I bought a guide to go with my circular saw, but that one looks great, so simple you think “why didn’t i think of that?” Where did you buy the non-slip mat?

The non slip mat is only shelf /drawer liner , I bought 1 roll and there was enough to make 2 guides. It was stuck on with contact adhisive.

The non-slip mat is a good addition. I must remember that.

Pardon my ignorance, Eoin, but what’s a drawer liner? All i can think of is those perfumed sheets people put in their drawers to make their underwear seem fragrant!! Can you buy it in the likes of Woodies? – sorry to pester you
