>A while back I was advised it was safe to saw through a round as long as the leading edge was supported with a small strip like the attached photo shows.

What are the expert opinions? The craftsman that demonstrated this is professional woodworker, teacher and author and a friend. I haven't had the need to give it a try but it did work very well when he demo'ed it. I don't remember if he used a scrap on the trailing edge but I don't think he did.
