Think that you make 2 pyramid pieces of "bread" Then sandwich a razor blade in the middle of the 2 wooden "sides" just so that a small corner pokes into the hole. Slide the straw into the bottom of the pyramid and pull it out the top hole. The razor blade cuts the tube as it is pulled through the hole. Sounds complicated, but it is easy. I'll post a pic tomorrow
Old thread, but still like to see that straw cutting jig.
