Pekka Svinhufvud is a woodworker in Finland who needed a saw capable of cutting extremely accurate miters for his segmented wood turnings. In his shoes I might have purchased a non-sliding miter saw and tweaked the fence or miter lock mechanism to allow for minute adjustments. But I understand why he did what he did; Svinhufvud is one of those guys who enjoy the challenge of building machines (he also built a band saw and table saw). Good for him that he got to build something so unusual and for us that we get to see it. Check out the rest of the photos and Svinhufvud’s description of how the saw works on Woodgears.
