Getting the Most from Your Table Saw

with Roland Johnson

The table saw is the centerpiece tool in many woodworking shops. It can rip and crosscut lumber with precision, and it can cut all sorts of joinery with great accuracy—from dadoes to tenons and more. But if your table saw is not set up and adjusted properly, bad things can happen, including inaccurate cuts, ragged or burned edges on your workpiece, or worse, a dangerous kickback that can cause serious injury. In this on-demand course, Fine Woodworking’s tool expert Roland Johnson shares his techniques, tips, and advice on getting your machine to work reliably, efficiently, accurately, and safely.
