I have a table saw with a 32" right had table. That works if my peice to be cut to length is shorter than 32" . If I am cutting something 36" I can use my chop saw but that is not accurate unless you have a stop. I can use my band saw but again that can be trouble some.

Because this is a stand I need 4 peices the exact same length 32 1/2" and 4 other peices the same length 36". Any advise would be highly appreciated.

Got them all cut quickly and
Did you know that sanders bite? While sanding cutting boards for Christmas sales with my ROS with 220 grit paper on it, the cord got stuck on the edge of my work bench. So I gave it a good tug and it came loose much easier than I anticipated so the sander ended up hitting my left hand cutting it deeply in the soft flesh between my thumb and index finger. Good thing I was using 220 grit instead of 80 grit. So after bleeding all over the garage floor getting to the paper towels, I got the bleeding under control and then wrapped it up and headed to the clinic to get it sewed up and now I got 6 lo
