My local lumber yard had a good sale on some timbers and I thought to use them to replace my failing garden border. They're 6" x 6". The previous border was two 3" x 3" stacked atop each other. I figured I can rip the timber.
I tried passing both sides with a 7 1/4" circular saw without using my brain. I found my plunge depth was only about 2 1/2". So I have an inch in the middle. I tried taking a hand saw, but the density of the wood, and not perfectly aligned initial passes with the circular saw make the hand sawing probably about a one hour job.
I don't have a table saw, nor a Sawzall, but I suppose I can try to find or rent one. What would you do in this scenario?
