Here’s an idea, but it will require the strength and quickness of a young
person.

Take your veneer saw

Make cuts roughly 1/4inch long, with a frequency of….say…..60 strokes per
second. If you’re in Europe, 50 will do.

I kid you not, your saw will look like it’s melting through the wood.

Once you’re through, you can use whatever saw you’d like to finish the cut.
Repeat for each side.

If your age (and wisdom!) prevents such dexterity, even with coffee, you’ll want
to search out someone younger. Or another form of apprentice.

Keep us posted!
