Why does my wood splinter when I cut it with my saw?

To your horror, every cut you make has a splintered edge!!!!!

A question as old as time. You bring home a beautiful piece of wood, get cracking on your project.

Why does this happen?

You’re cutting the wood AGAINST the grain. Especially in soft woods like pine, its important to cut along the direction of the wood grain

So flip your wood the other way, and keep on building!
