    I wanted to resaw some red oak and was trying to figure out how best to keep the saw tracking straight, when I spotted my poor man’s beading tool in my chest. It worked surprisingly well.

    1. Set the screw depth to size.
    2. Scratch a nice groove around all four sides of the stock.
    3. Enhance the depth of the groove with a back saw.
    4. Resaw with a 5ppi rip saw

    Great solution, dude. A new “poor man’s” tool.

    I always just made the kerf with a back saw. I never thought of using the poor man’s beading tool. I will have to the try that the next time. Thanks for the idea.
