Cross-cut stops

It's always nice to be able to add a bit of efficiency into the shop, especially if you work mostly with hand tools. I was working on a set of shelves the other day and I needing to cut eight, small nailing strips. I wanted them to be the same length so I set up this little stop to help me out.

Locked down with a couple of holdfasts and the set up stays put
Just like a power saw, you put the wood up against the stop and make your cut. Then a couple of quick passes on the shoot board and I was off to the races. Not to mention that I look good sporting my Copperhead Killer! Well....the saw looks good at any rate, not to mention saws like a boss.

Acuracy and good looking...how can you go wrong?

In order to understand, you must do. V
