Circular Saw Jig & Straight EdgeA straight edge is a vital part of every woodshop, in that it can be used to mark straight lines when outlining a cut, or it can be used as a guide for a circular saw, router or jigsaw.

The question is, can you make a quality straight edge, or should you rely on a commercially manufactured version to ensure that your lines (and cuts) are straight. Learn the benefits of both types (along with some additional information to consider when making your choice) in Woodworking Straight Edges.
