Introduction Edit

Making tons of wedges is an annoying task. This article describes a tool used for making wooden wedges using a circular saw.

Making a wedge-sawing helper Edit

First, using a piece of wood to mark the slope of the wedge on a piece of plank as roughly as thick as the wedges are wide:

Ensure that the slope and size of the area that was cut away is correct, and adjust if necessary:

Attach a piece of plywood to the plank to prevents the circular saw from lifting the wedge up when it's being pushed against the blade:

Insert a piece into the wedge-sawing helper and push the whole thing through the circular saw. Use a wooden stick to prevent the cut away part of the wedge from flying into your eye. Also remember to wear eye protection, as this is fairly hazardous business:

Depending on the width of the rectangular pieces of wood, you'll end up with two sizes of wedges with the same slope:

After sawing the wedges, smoothen them with a file or sandpaper, and you're done:
