Marking hacks every DIYer should know
Before we get too far into the hacks and tricks, let’s pause a moment to make sure we all understand the basics of marking for a cut. It’s always best practice to mark the board where the saw will make its first contact. For a circular saw, that’s usually at the edge of the board, while a mitre saw cut should be marked in the middle of the board. When possible, mark with a ‘V’ to reduce the chances of favouring one side of the line or the other.
