Circular Saw Pro Tips (VIDEO)

Check out these excellent circular saw tips from a long-time carpenter and all-around craftsman.

In this video Scott Wadsworth, the Essential Craftsman, shares some handy tips and tricks for using a skill saw (circular saw). These tips include:

  • How to cut four boards after making just one measurement
  • How to miter using a skill saw instead of a miter saw
  • How to cut through thick lumber with just a circular saw

Scott recommends that viewers not try these techniques unless they are already at least proficient with a skill saw. These tips will save a lot of time, but speed should never be prioritized over safety.
