I was in a bit of a sinch this afternoon – out in the garden needing to butt joint two pieces of wood but my pain in the bum chop saw wouldn’t give me a straight enough cut.
So I put my thinking cap on an came up with this little set up. The only provision is that the two thin scraps (on which the stock rest) need to be the same thickness. Other than that, this can be made with any old scrap, to any old size you like!
This turned out to be a super convenient set up, easy to calibrate and gave surprisingly good results.
I’m sure some/most of you will not see this as anything new but to me – I’ve learned that necessity is indeed, the mother of invention.
