Tony Teolis/ April 19, 2013/ Gardens, Preparedness/ 0 comments

In today’s short video I show how I made and employ a straight for accurate circular saw cutting. Before I purchased the  Makita Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Hypoid Saw I made everything seen at ToDoListHome.com the old fashioned way with a handsaw. It wasn’t easy but I made some nice things like the pyramid planter

and the other raised beds back in 20110. Since I purchased the circular saw my creations have become much more frequent and beautiful.

Now with the aid of a straight edge used for cutting with my saw I am able to not only make accurate cuts but I can make more varied cuts that are hard to do by had such at these.
