Crosscutting with a hand saw can be a real challenge and burden to the hand tool woodworker. In my video link below, I provide a tutorial on how to crosscut a large piece of stock with only hand tools. The result is within a 1/16 of perfection. The Paul sellers method combined with a few tricks of the trade will provide you the “know how” to cut large stock with a cheap saw. Thanks for watching!
