Don’t buy an ex­pen­sive track saw to cut dead-straight lines through sheet ma­te­ri­als – make this easy DIY guide for your cir­cu­lar saw! 1. Glue and screw a thin strip of 12mm ply­wood to a wider strip. Use the fac­tory edge of the ply­wood on the thin strip and off­set it so there is 150mm to the edge of the wide strip. 2. Set your saw to cut 15mm deep and put it on the guide so the edge of the widest part of the base­plate is against the thin strip. Run it along the guide to cut off the edge of the wide strip. 3. When us­ing the guide, sim­ply align this cut edge with the cut­ting line on your tim­ber, clamp, then run the saw along it. Too easy!
