how to cut timber
I'm recycling some fruit boxes obtained from my local market. The corner pieces are triangular shaped fillets (see above image).
How can I safely cut these in half lengthways: ie make two triangular section out of one piece?
A: The safest way to cut something that small is by hand. You could use a fret saw or coping saw. If the pieces are thin enough you could clamp a straightedge in place and use a veneer saw, or possibly a razor blade.
You could possibly use a scroll saw, but only if you have experience with cutting things that small. Scroll saw blades are thin, but can still do damage.
