Today’s first invention was a clamp-on edge-cutting device, where a beveled Skilsaw runs down the jig and makes the perfect bevel. Well, it worked sort of okay but not great. The Skilsaw made one of those bad burning cat hair smells, and the cuts were less than ideal.
So for the third-sheets, each eight feet long and sixteen inches wide, we made a goofy vertical jig on the table saw and shot them through. This actually worked brilliantly. Unfortunately, all the rest of my scarfs will be on the ends of eight-foot sheets of plywood, and this system will not work. Back to the drawing board.
Anyhow, by quitting time we had all four of the big panels laid out and glued up. Next we scarf the ends of these and make the two 5’1″ x 15’9″ floor panels.
