Shop Update for 12/9/16: Sawing without a Saw Bench
You Don’t Have To Stoop to Saw
This week I answer a question from Bob borne out of my Sawing class at Woodworking in America. Bob isn’t able to bend his knee or lean on it like we would while using a sawbench. He wants to know if there is an alternate method for accurate sawing that doesn’t require the use of his knee. Not only is there an alternative, sometimes the overhand method I show is the best method when working with thin or narrow boards.
I also talk briefly about my new dust collection set up and stiffening the mobile base I’m using for my Barnes lathe.
