    I have a question concerning post lengths. The blade recommendations I bought were from highland woodworking, and are 26.5 inches hole to hole. I was wondering if Paul or the team had any thoughts on whether to adjust the height of the posts from 16″ based on the stretcher having to be much bigger than the 17.5 inches in the cut list. Should the posts be longer because the stretcher will be longer?

    Hi, sorry for not getting back to you on this. We don’t regularly manage to check through the forum posts fully. 16″ should be fine, but you can increase it if you like. Just be aware of excess flex. The similar frame saw Paul made on YouTube still has a 16″ uprights despite having a longer blade.

    I work alongside Paul to plan and produce the videos for Woodworking Masterclasses
