George Vondriska demonstrates the benefit of using Japanese Pull Saws to make cuts on your woodworking projects that aren’t quite right for a power tool. He explains why the saw has two different sets of teeth – fine on one side for cross-cutting wood and aggressive on the other for ripping – and makes a cut with the saw to show you how simple it is to use.

    Awfully shaky workbench. I'd expect you'd have one which was more stable.

    I've found that although it might not be the proper way to use the saw, the crosscut side works better for short ripping runs, and leaves a much cleaner cut, in the same way a normal crosscut saw does.
