My circular saw just wasn’t big enough to cut through the 150mm Oak beams. So I rented this fella for a morning to chop them all to size.
With hindsight I didn’t really need to. If I was doing it now I’d use my newly acquired skill saw…
to make cuts all the way around the beam and then finish it off with a hand saw. But you live and learn. The big arse circular saw certainly made it quicker.
Whilst we’re on the subject of new tools acquired for this project.
