Large Slab Table Saw Circle Cutting

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

This is how I cut large circular slabs on the table saw.  In the years before high power consumer routers this is how it was always done.  Sort of a lost art that seems to invite rage from those who don't know better.  Having done it both ways, I like the smooth and easy simplicity of that as opposed to trying to make multiple cuts with a router and trying to keep it from gouging each time you lower and start it.

    Very nice, and thanks for showing the blade. It's something I wouldn't have thought of!
