Sawing Square

Use a 12-inch speed square to guide your circular saw when crosscutting. With the saw switched off, position it on the layout line, then slide the square up to the saw shoe. Tom holds the square in position with one hand, but if that’s not comfortable, you can clamp the square in place to free up both hands for guiding the saw.
