Neat trick using the refection in the saw to draw a square perpendicular line.

IMO, the judgement of the reflection to create a 90 degree cut line would not be as accurate as using a combo or try square.

Just an observation in watching the video, Chris Swartz's hands don't look like woodworkers hands. They are in too good of a shape. No calluses, roughness, like I would expect to see. They sure don't look like mine.:laughing:

lol, funny observation C-man...

As for the reflection thing - while I agree with you c-man, taken in the spirit of the instruction though it's a "3rd Class" cut meaning it's for rough framing and thereby not intended to be dead accurate.

Not something I would probably ever do but neat all the same. If I ever timber frame a house though... :thumbsup:

The reflection trick will work, provided the saw is either square, or perpindicular at the start.

You can make an angled, bevel cut, and have a reflection that looks square.

Yeah, but as Tom said that was used for a 3rd class cut...whatever that means.:laughing:
