I'm a life-long learner and I love to create, whether it's music, art, writing, or with wood. I'm an amateur sawdust maker and no one would ever confuse my woodworking with a professional's. Still, I love to do it! And hopefully, I'm getting a little better every year. I've been at it for about 15 years now.

Hi there,

I’m an amateur sawdust maker, new to this forum. I can usually figure out any trouble I run into, but I’m stumped on this one: I have a 60” x 21” butcher block top made of maple. I want to cut it to 54”, but I’m not sure what the best approach is. I can use my circ saw and guide, but that means I’ll have to flip the top and finish the cut on the bottom side. This thing is HEAVY, so I’m not thrilled with that idea, plus I’m concerned with accuracy, making sure the two cuts line up. I was also thinking about using a router and guide and progressively increasing the depth on each pass… I failed to mention that the top is 3.25” thick. Can I get some advice on the best way to cross-cut this beast of a top? Table saw is out of the question because of the weight/size of this thing.

Thanks in advance!

OK, so I’m a dope. I commented on my own profile by posting a forum question. Off to a good start… :)
