The saw I have is a Vermont American. It is not the same as the Stanley link that you sent, but it looks similar.

Thanks to you all for the advice. It sounds like the saw I have will work, even if not ideal. I’ll give it a shot next chance I get and see what I end up with.

I just watched the Woodwright’s Shop episode on sawing from 2010. They had a great demonstration of the difference between crosscut and rip saws using a broom. Neat.

The ryoba style saw is interesting. Will it leave a cleaner cut than what I’m using now? I’m getting an ugly edge and a lot of tear out on the bottom, although I’m sure much of that is lack of skill.
