Re: Making undercut hand holds on bee boxes
I made up a jig and cut a chunk of hand holds. I have also used more than one skil saw on the jig and only had to modify my center line a smidge. I would think that since you need to plunge the blade to make the cut that the saw would try to twist and bind sideways. I have found I set the ‘foot’ of the saw to the front of the cradle and plunge and move down the sled. I would not classify myself as a “good woodworker” but I have built a bit of furniture.
I was thinking of trying using the dato cut on the box first and then lining your jig with the nice sharp cut for the bevel.
