Hello, I have a newel post stump that needs squaring off in order to attach
a replacement top.
Does anybody know the best way to do this?
I have tried hacking bits off with a chisel and sanding, I was thinking
about planing but it's across the grain in Mahogany.
Use a square to mark a line round all four sides. Clamp or screw (fill the
holes after) a wood batten to two opposite sides exactly touching the lines.
The battens should extend 6" ish either side.
Buy a new 'hardpoint' cross cut saw and use the battens as a sort of built
in mitre box.
