A very good piece of advice here.I have ruined a good side panel by being lazy and not bothering to tape the panel off.While moving the panel/tools around I ended up with a very badly scratched finish, due to the little shavings from my jigsaw, which ruined the piece altogether.
PLZ...Some more of your excellent guides CyberDruid......so we can all make cases like yours.
