    Is there a reason you didn’t use a table or circular saw?

      Some pieces, like this one, are just too big too big to safely handle on a table saw. A circ saw would have left too rough an edge, and would still have needed to be cleaned up with a router.

    I use masking tape applied to the top side of my board down the middle of the cut, always get a nice clean cut. Just remove the tape, no sanding needed.
