  • My first stack cutting

    Well I finally gave stack cutting a try, I used two 1/4 BB plywood pieces, followed the advise of others here on the forum, I taped around the edges of the plywood and then used a brad in each corner....and it worked!!

    Another great day spent at the saw!!

    Great job on the stack cutting!

    I use tape but I don't nail the edges. I haven't had the need to so far.

    Those pieces are finished really well. Great work!

      Very nice work-- and I just tack and don't use tape around the edges--lol
      I do cover the top with clear packing tape to help control the small cut outs-- and I put poster board on the back to keep the splintering from splintering--I also put a tack of few inside the work area where it may have a arc (bow) in one of the boards- this keeps both boards together and is placed some large place that will be removed or I have even saved the tacked spot to cut last and take out the tack if I can't saw around it..
      But wasn't it fun to learn --now that you can do the portriate you can go to the scenic and more complex projects....

        I do as Carl does, just tape around to hold the stack. But, so Sharon dont feel so bad I will admit I use clear packing tape on the top too!!!!!
