In this video tip, Fine Homebuilding editor Kevin Ireton demonstrates a low-cost solution that David let us know about.

I don't normally try and undertake the big sawing jobs on my own at home because I've very little storage space for a big table - my backyard is already quite cluttered as it is! But your solution might actually be quite feasible in my scenario. Looks like I'll have to pick up a new project so that I can test the theory out now won't I? Haha!
