Supervised and completed cut (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

oversaw

Here is my best explanation:

'supervised' is the definition.

('oversee' can be a synonym of 'supervise')

'completed cut' is the subsidiary indication.

'completed' becomes 'over' ('over' can be a synonym of 'completed').

'cut' becomes 'saw' (sawing is a kind of cutting).

'over'+'saw'='oversaw'

'and' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Another definition for oversaw that I've seen is "Supervised".)
