Step 3. Use a Jigsaw to Cut Wood
Time to plug in your Jigsaw. Pull the trigger before touching the jig blade to the wood. If the blade is already touching, you’ll realize immediately, because you’ll barely be able to cut into the wood and will experience a ton of vibration.
As you cut, always press down and ensure that the metal tray of the jigsaw is flush against the wood you are cutting. Press it HARD into the wood as you cut. This will greatly reduce vibration, lessen the impact on your hands and allow more precise cuts!
