I was wondering about the feasibility of using a jigsaw to cut half lap joints. Is it even possible? How would one go about it?
I thought that maybe one could set up a small jig to elevate the jigsaw above the wood and simulate the capability of adjusting the height of a circular saw blade. Is this safe? Will the jigsaw even cut if it doesn't clear the wood?
I understand that it can be difficult to get properly square cuts with the jigsaw and it might require extra "hand tool cleanup", but I'm kind of curious if this could be any faster/easier than simply using handsaws.
