Cardboard Surface Saver for Woodworking Projects
Foolproof flush-cutting trick for your woodworking projects.
Even when using a flush-cut saw I take precautions to save wood surfaces from marring. My trick for trimming dowels is to cut a hole in a thin piece of cardboard or plastic and fit it over the dowel. This way the blade never touches the wood. The remaining dowel sands flush in a snap. – Brad Holden
