Table Saw Intensive
The table saw is perhaps the most versatile tool in any woodshop but is also one of the more dangerous and intimidating. In this workshop we will focus on the table saw, what it can do and what it can't, how to use it safely and what can go wrong. We will discuss jigs that make specific cuts more safe, easy and accurate, work with the dado set and go over more advanced operations (bevel cuts, rabbets, etc).
