Saw-safe sheet-goods cutting supports
The unwieldy nature of sheet goods makes cutting them a clumsy operation. To make the task easier, I built these inexpensive 2×4 frames. They support the material fully, so you don't have to worry about pieces falling as they tend to do on sawhorses. Because they're assembled with dowels, any accidental cuts into a joint in the frame won't cause blade damage or kickback. When you finish using them, they stack and store easily.
