Sure, if you’re a skilled woodworker. If not, then it’s pretty simple and inexpensive to make one.
You know where the wood is? In the center or top. Here’s a very simple diagram of the relationship:
This diagram shows how the blade edge, or “corner,” of the saw is cut by the saw’s teeth. I’m making a two-bladed saw that can be used to cut any shape of board, so you should learn to use it for this.
The handle of the saw is the cutting “hand,” the piece the blade meets when pushing the board to a cutting edge, which is actually the end of the saw blade. It can be anywhere along the sides of the saw blade, even inside that “hand.” I use a simple tool made of cardboard and wood to cut boards. A saw would be much more useful if the handle were metal, and if there were a tool that could push against the piece as it came down to the table saw. My miter saw has a handle that protrudes around the edges (and doesn’t protrude too far), but it is not very useful for cutting. In some cases, an electric band saw would be most effective.
You know all those miter saws and bandsaws for wood? Those are fine for cutting 2-by-4 boards, and perhaps 6-by-8. Some of my favorite bandsaw blades are the ones that are used to make cut-out lumber or sheetmetal (though my favorite is probably the Stanley No. 7 blade, as it’s a bit easier to sharpen than the Stanley No. 2 blade). You could get an electric cut-out blade for an old saw, but many of them aren’t very sharp. For a decent price or two, you can get a cutting guide. For example, WoodCraft’s electric cutting guide sells for $12 for a set of four. Or for $25 for 24 individual guides, and $20 for a set of guide sets (which includes four 4-ft. guide wheels). I also found great cutting guides on ebay for over $100. There are many variations, but you can find a woodworking guide on Amazon for less than $20 for a two-page PDF that is printed 8″ wide on standard paper.
I have found that the simplest way to prepare a large number of small pieces, and then cut or sand them all with the same miter saw is to use a m
