  • Most sheet goods plywood, particleboard, OSB, etc. come from the factory as nice square rectangles. Recognizing this benefit, Club member David Oliver of Somerville, New Jersey, keeps track of the factory edges and corners (provided theyre square) by marking them with a pencil. By guiding these edges against the saw fence, hes able to ensure square cuts for his workpieces. Because these edges get worn and can look ragged, its best to cut them off if theyre used in a joint or if they show.
