Tips for sawing
Stock-support blocks save bench space
Long support tables for a radial-arm saw or mitersaw make cutting lengthy stock a breeze, but I couldn't dedicate one whole wall of my tiny shop to one tool. Forcing my workbench into double duty seemed to be the best idea, but I didn't want to move all the stuff off the bench every time I wanted to make a cut.
So, instead of setting the saw base flush with the benchtop, I raised it 3-1/8" higher. At that height, I can slip a short length of 4 x 4 under each end of my workpiece and not have to clear the entire bench.
