I use an 8 foot x 6 inch strip of mdf with a inch strip of mdf around 1 side and 1 end. So it makes an ā€œLā€ shape. I place the board to be cut on the table between the blade and fence. With the concavety to the fence ( it bows towards the blade) then I place the guide on top of the board with the long strip to the fence side and the short strip on the infeed side. Push the board as far as it will go into the L and then measure smallest amount from strip side of guide to edge of board toward blade. Meaning the point of board closest to guide. That is the setting of the fence. Slide the board and guide back and over in front of blade and move fence to measured amount and make the cut pushing board against guide against fence. The cut I made becomes the reference for cutting the other side without the guide.

It took far longer to write than it does to do it.
