So this was from my box experimenting days... And it turns out it's a good idea to have ruuully nice blades when cutting thicker wood (i.e., 2 inches). You know how I hate getting startled? Well, even worse than a balloon popping near your face is your saw blade breaking mid cut. Cuz your fingers are RIGHT. THERE. And it takes you a second to make sure they're all still attached. Good heavens, it's a horrific ordeal for jumpy people like me. SO...top-o'-the-line blades are on the immediate wish list and box making shall continue! I'm thinking fish boxes next. Because, you know, what's wrong with a fish box? Absolutely nothing.
