How to Cut a Wide Board Using a Circular Saw?
It is common practice for woodworkers to use circular saws to cut wide boards down into smaller pieces for storage and easier transport. In this blog post, we will show you how to cut a 6×6 wide board using a circular saw.
To cut a 6×6 with a circular saw, you will need to measure and mark the board where you want your cut. Put one end of the board on an edge against the fence of your table saw or other cutting machine so that it is as close to vertical as possible. Begin by making angled cuts from both sides at about 3 inches deep until they meet in the middle. The result should be two 4-inch wide pieces each 1 inch shorter than before. If these are too short for what you’re working on, just repeat this process again!
