My First Year with a Table SAW

Share it with your friends Like

A year ago I bought my first table saw. I was always handy around the house, I had several hand tools, I had completed many projects with just hand tools, but now it was time to get serious.

This video is about OJT, On the Job Training with aTable Saw. I wanted to do several projects that in my mind, required a table saw. So I made the leap. My first project was to rebuild a garden bench, which I wanted to do for four years.

I started project after project. I was having a blast. It seemed that every project needed a table saw. Then the request started to come. My daughter wanted a shelf unit, my wife wanted a screen door. My skill set was growing. I wanted to build something that challenged me, thus the Dresser Build. This is the project that resulting in me building three sleds or jigs.
In this video I show you all of the (successful) project builds, show the sleds and jigs I built, and I share with you the tips I learned the first year. After nearly a year I felt confident enough to try one of the woodworking challenges. I submitted my entry into the Two 2×4 Challenge.
