    building new box.. no table saw...

    I have no table saw, what are some other options of getting my peices cut out? My last box I used a circular saw and I didn't like the way it turned out. Would Home Depot or Lowes cut my pieces for me by chance?

    what was wrong with it? if you have a good solid setup to cut on and a good straight line, preferably a chalk line, and some practice with a circular saw, then if you should be able to make a good cut. my new circular saw has a laser on it. makes following straight lines so much easier.

    X2 on the circular saw. They are cheap and easy to use. In my experience Home Depot is not very accurate at cutting wood. They are at least 1/4-1/2" off all the time.

    I have a guide. Its nothing more than just a flat piece of aluminum (sp) that you clamp onto your wood and run the saw against the edge. Works great.

    Re: building new box.. no table saw...

    yea. just go buy a piece of aluminum in an L shape, and some nice clamps

    clamp the aluminum to the left\right (depending on what side of the line you need to cut, line is drawn with a Tsquare) of your line so that the blade lines up with your cutting line.



    heres a FULL walkthrough
