Nice catch Bently. That was actually a staged image for the camera without the TS running. I actually did and do as you suggest when not ‘posing’… ;-)
I still hate cutting sheet goods though. I have to rearrange the shop, shove the jointer out of the way, rotate the TS, all to get enough space before and after the TS just to make the cut. Even had the GF lifting the outfeed just enough to get everything on the rollers. In times past, I would just sacrifice the other 1/2 sheet by cutting proud with a CS and sizing later. This was too big a project waste so much ply. After this, I am going back to smaller projects… I promise!
