Default Sometimes, 'normal' is good....

I realize that this is EZ basics, but, when you're in the middle of doing it, it is soooo nice to be able to do it quickly and precisely.

One of my clients started hanging some 1/2" thick paneling the other day; got to the hard parts and decided to have me finish it. Part of his problem had to do with getting the edges to line up nicely, and cutting straight, as well as cutting tapered cuts.
Obviously, this is EZ 101.
He didn't know that you can't trust the edges of ply to be straight. So, before anything else, I straight-lined about 1/32" off of the edges with the SSRK. (Pic 1). Then it was just a matter of moving the track to the cut line and running the saw. (Pic 2) As I installed the panels, I put a few biscuits between each piece to keep them in the same plane; ran a few fasteners; that was it.
Another day in EZ-land.
ps there's a smart table under that panel, on top of the buckets.
