Any tips on how to slice a 3" x 1" short board into two equal 1/2" thick slices? I managed it safely but ended up with the board tilted slightly so ended up with wedge-shaped cross-sections. Problem was using push sticks because of the finger-saver wotsit over the blade, so clearly I failed to hold the piece plumb to the fence....

could you double sided tape it to a larger piece, say 6x2?

That's an idea. Why didn't I think of that?! Thank you. Will try it again.
