A table saw is the first stationary power tool purchased for many home workshops and one of the most versatile tools for wood working. Table Saw Techniques is a comprehensive guide to choosing the right table saw and using it in a safe and professional manner. This book covers basic ripping and crosscutting techniques in addition to more advanced joinery cuts.

In-depth explanations and hundreds of full color photos provide step-by-step instructions for purchasing a used saw, setting up the saw, changing blades, using safety equipment, and operating the saw like a seasoned carpenter.
