When setting up your workspace we recommend placing a spoil board (sheet of MDF) underneath your material and clamping them both securely to your worktable. This allows you to perform a clean through cut without cutting into your table. Spoil board can be re-used many times.
If you are cutting smaller pieces we recommend placing double sided tape underneath your material to secure them to the spoil board. This will prevent your parts from coming out during the finishing pass.
