Get the most from your Tablesaw

The tablesaw is an essential tool in woodworking and carpentry. Tablesaws excel at ripping wood to width, but they can do so much more. Outfitted with the right accessories and jigs, a tablesaw can cut accurate joinery, cut bevels, raise panels, and even cut coves for crown molding. Learn how to make this versatile tool work for you.

About the Author: Paul Anthony is a professional woodworker, writer and photographer. He is also the author of Smart Workshop Solutions and the editor of Power Tools. He lives in Riegelsville, Pennsylvania.
