Put the end of the blank next to the blade with the waste side facing down. Adjust the blade height to just graze the pencil line. Mark that spot and set the fence so the cut will hit the mark. After making the cut, turn the saw off and adjust the blade height to a different spot on the profile. Move the fence slightly and cut again. Repeat until the profile is roughed out.
