It's now official. 'First cut' has been confirmed. At 5:15 pm this afternoon. It really didn't seem so important when I made the cut. I'll add pictures tomorrow of some of the fresh cut frame members. First thoughts on the Dewalt jig saw, cuts through 1/2" (12mm) plywood very easily and not at full speed. I'm quite impressed with it's performance thus far.
Note: when cutting straight lines with a jig saw... don't RUSH!
Time: 30 min.
