I'm making a bow saw. I am starting with a billet of oak, 1.5" x
3.5" by 29.5". I'm going to rip out 7/8" slats (to plane down to 3/4").
The thought of ryoba-ing for ten feet gives my the willies. I have no
My plan: clamp securely in the workmate, set CS depth of cut shy 1/4
in or so and then rip the thin remainder with the ryoba. (The rip fence
will work for a couple of the cuts.) I believe this will be safe. But,
hey, why not ask first and do something else while awaiting answers?
(Safety first, last, and always.)
