Introduction: Natural Edge Cutting Tool

Scott has a lot of interesting challenges working with raw material and sometimes he has to create his own tools to get the job done. In this video he shows a tool he made that aides in cutting a straight edge on a board with two natural edges.

Like the video, and that seems a lot safer than other solutions I've seen [Chalk Line and free hand cutting, please tell me the free hand cut was with a hand held circular saw and not a table saw?!] Just a tip: Placing a small cleat on the top of the sled for the back edge of the board you are cutting to 'seat' against would be a good addition. While I am sure those clamps are strong there is still potential for the board to slip and slipping out of one clamp and not the other could turn ugly quick.

This seems very useful. Could you add some captions to the video? Like that "A moment later...".

I can't understand spoken English, but can read it almost well.

If you do, please PM me. Thanks in advance.
