The table saw is the single tool that turns the hobbyist into a real woodworker, capable of handling a range of challenging jobs. With expert advice, colour photos, drawings, and exploded diagrams, Popular Mechanics reveals exactly what this all-important piece of equipment can do. This invaluable and instructive manual covers it all: cutting wood to precise dimension; making simple joints such as grooves, dadoes, rabbets, and mitres; crafting jigs and fixtures; and doing advanced techniques, from moulding to resawing. It even provides a visual "anatomy" of the many types of available table saws, along with guidance on maintenance and troubleshooting. A series of great projects includes Demilune Table, Bookcase, Blanket Chest, and Wall-Hung Tool Cabinet. Purchasing a table saw is a major investment and it makes sense to learn as much as possible before buying. This volume gives details on the different types of table saws available and the features that each offers. In addition, it takes a look at add-ons, jigs, and safety accessories to help decide what is essential and what is not.
