Re: Table saw recommendations
As for the hand hold jig. I am satisfied just borrowing Cleo's Idea. I am pretty sure if I thought about it long enough I could come up with something that woudl work on a table saw. The first problem is that this cut is the product of a blade that changes depth in the wood. The blade on a table saw is fixed. In the case of the Cleo's design the blade is what is being moved not the wood.
For the table saw you need to reverse this moment. the blade sets still and the wood moves. but you still want the movement to be exactly the same in relationship of wood to blade. i hope this makes since. The key here is the idea it is opposite. So start looking at Cleo's jig and thinking opposite. The opposite of the saw being tilted is that the wood is tilted. the opposite of the saw on top is that the wood is on top and the opposite of the saw being moved is that the wood is moved.
So flip the whole jig over place the wood so it is held at an angle and make a guide so the entire thing can be pushed sideways at the table saw blade. At least that is the basic idea. good luck with that
Oh an pray the blade can be raised high enough to cut the wood deep enough.
