About Us


THE SMART CUT is just one of several ideas brewed between two buddies, Bjorn and Joel, who started their friendship at the US Naval Academy in the mid-1990s.  

Joel, having grown up in the trades with his father, and Bjorn, having later worked as a Store Manager for Home Depot, wasting time at the saw became a point of "MAN, THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY" conversation.

However, during a particularly challenging renovation project, Bjorn called Joel and said, "Hey remember that miter saw idea...lets figure it out.  I just spent a whole weekend fooling with boards and measuring, marking, cutting and re-cutting... and so the THE SMART CUT was born.

Since 2020 we have been working to perfect THE SMART CUT system to save time and increase accuracy.  Through thousands of cuts, days in the field with experts, infinite product tweaks and miles of scrap lumber, we have a product that does exactly as we had hoped.

We're always available for feedback, questions, improvement ideas or conversation around "MAN, THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY".

Enjoy your time back!

Bjorn and Joel
