Reusable Blocks

You can make your own reusable sanding blocks. Cut six equal size blocks from scrap and spread the adhesive on the blocks by spraying. Now stick one of block with cork and then cut the flash of the cork.

After that, you need to spray the adhesive on the sandpaper and then putt all the blocks on it with the cork side of the block downward so it forms a unique equal size shape.

Now, cut the flash of sandpaper block and label each block. When all these processes are completed with accuracy and skill, the reusable sanding blocks are ready for use.

Crosscutting Stop Block

If you clamp a block with the fence on the table and then adjust the length cut with it, you can achieve better results. If you don’t use this technique, results might be waste of time and effort as you cannot produce the results you want.

It is important to take care of the fence use because if you are overusing the fence then you may end up with the board kicked back at 90 degrees to you. Before clamping the blade, first clamp the block of wood with the working table and then adjust the blade.

In this way, the end of the board will be easy to work on without any hindrance caused by the fence in case of no clearance. Remember, you don’t need to use tricky fractions. 1. Inch could be a great scale for this purpose.

Stair Gauge Cutting Guide

This tip includes the usage of stair gauge for crosscut guide. The main purpose of stair gauges is to lay out the stair jacks.

The carpenter’s square is connected with the stair gauge to mark the notches where the rise and run is matching fine.

To make a good woodworking crosscut guide for the usable circular saws, you can put both on the same tongue of the particular carpenter’s square.

You can put the tape on the line of joints and then cut them with good cutting blade or a knife. You must peel off the tape before the glue gets dry.
