Class: Learn to use a Table Saw

Learn to use a table saw like this one

The table saw simplifies ripping, crosscutting, cutting bevels, and more, but it demands respect.

See how to set up any table saw for peak performance, then learn how to safely rip a board down its length, use the miter gauge to crosscut to length and make angled cuts, and how basic jigs make operations easier, more accurate, and safer.

This class meets for one week, for 3 hours:

  • Saturday, April 6 from 9:00-11:00 am
