    Icon8 Box Builders: Ever have just a bad day?

    I kid you not, I wasted an entire 4 x 8 sheet of MDF today. I couldn't cut worth a ****. My hand wasn't steady, didn't have patience to begin with, and I think my square was bent. So I went out and bought ANOTHER 4 x 8 sheet of MDF, and a new square. Came home, took one cut off a scrap sheet to practice, and I just called it quits for the day. Usually whenever I build a box, I may have 1 or 2 bad cuts TOPS, but nothing like this before. I use a circular saw btw.

    Ridiculous.

    i use the clamped square method as a guide. I can't cut a straight square line free hand to save my life.

    Re: Box Builders: Ever have just a bad day?

    I bought one of those clamp things, and it was too much of a PITA.

    For the most part, I have the circular saw mastered. I can rip right through boards and be within 1/32" of an inch TOPS. But today, idk. I think I might buy a drywall T-Square next week, to help me out with getting everything nice and square.

    Re: Box Builders: Ever have just a bad day?

    Ive wasted a piece or two (not a whole 4x8...but some) before by simply measuring to the wrong side of the blade on the table saw ...but not much, but it really ticks you off when you make mistakes

    my favrite is when i measure from the 1" mark due to all the ends on my tape measurer's being loose, and forgetting to take up for that extra inch.
