Tree leaning to the right. Good choice. This bottom cut mirrors the top cut and creates
a perfect V-notch.


Now choose the back cut that you would make.
 
Backcut 1 Backcut 2 Backcut 3
 
 

 

 
Backcut 1 This cut is NOT the best choice because it is higher than the notch corner and will result in barber chair damage.

Choose another cut.
 

 

 
Backcut 2 This cut is NOT the best choice because it is too deep and doesn't leave enough wood for an adequate hinge.

Choose another cut.
