panel cutting guide can be built in one weekend using standard 1x lumber
(3/4"-thick softwood). Hardware is available at any hardware store or home center.
Cut 4' x 8' sheet goods horizontally and vertically, and cut smaller sheets as
well. The bottom of the guide tilts out when you're using it, and back against
the wall when you're not. The finished size of the guide is a little longer and
wider than a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood. And it sticks out about 6" from the wall
when not in use.
This woodworking plan was originally featured in ShopNotes No. 48.
