4 x 8 panel cross cuts

This topic came up in another thread, and I had forgotten that I had an easy solution for occasional cross cutting 4 x 8 panels. I made a guide for my circular saw that is 90 degrees square to the length by using the factory end of the plywood to set up the guide. It's close enough for my work! :laughing: Two clamps keep the guide from shifting. Measure the distance from the saw blade to the saw base and add that dimension behind the cut line. In this case 1 1/2" clamp it up and saw away! :thumbsup: bill

That's a nice jig. We've used the same concept when squaring up cabinet stock rips, with a router and 1/2" straight cutter, prior to cross cutting on the table saw.

Never had enough money to invest in a sliding table saw.
