The table saw is a cornerstone of every shop, and in this introductory class you'll learn the fundamentals on how this powerful and versatile machine works. We'll start with the anatomy of a table saw and how to calibrate your saw to achieve precise cuts every time, and then move onto skills like ripping wood, making mitre cuts, and learning about how to make rabbets and dadoes.
Whether you've got a budget saw or high end model, the skills to operate effectively are the same. By the end of this class you'll have covered almost all the cuts you'll ever make with a table saw. You'll have the skills and confidence to handle the table saw like a pro, and soon be taking your techniques far beyond the scope of this class.

With the skills you learn in this class, you can enter a project into the Woodworking Contest!
Outside of the wood shop he's designed and built hundreds of prototypes that explore the intersection of functionality and whimsical absurdity, from chainsaw blenders to successfully melting metal in a microwave (though, that project eventually caught fire).
His work has been featured all over the Internet, in print media in all kinds of languages, and even on Japanese television. When not getting his hands dirty building, Mike is a published author and video maker.
