Stepladder Outboard Support

Set a folding ladder beside a saw, clamp a narrow board to the ladder with C-clamps so the board lies level on the saw table.

The Family Handyman

Hey, our ladders just got a lot more useful, thanks to this stand-up tip from reader Robert Maho. When sawing longer boards with a miter saw, set a folding ladder beside the saw and clamp a narrow board to the ladder with a pair of C-clamps so the board lies level on the saw table. Now you can saw sharp, accurate miters safely on those long railings without employing a second pair of hands.
