Last winter I jigsawed a whole bunch of toy parts from a sheet of plywood. I love my jigsaw, but it never fails— that darn plywood splinters every time. Finer saw blades helped, but it took way too long to cut the parts. Plywood is so expensive, I had to find a better way to cut it.
My solution? A zero-clearance base plate made from l/8-in. hard-board. I cut a V-notch with a slot for the blade and I secured it to the base with double-faced tape. Now my cuts are virtually splinter free!
