Table Saw Basics - Demo & Instruction
Thursday, August 29, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
What's that machine in the center of almost every wood shop? It's the table saw!
In this free course, we'll demonstrate fundamental table saw techniques of ripping, miter-gauge use, and panel cutting. We'll also discuss the essentials of working safely: eye and ear protection, push sticks, featherboards, and safe cutting techniques. You'll gain an understanding of how proper table saw use can enhance your next project.
This class/demonstration will be led by Jeff Faust. Jeff has been a professional woodworker for over sixteen years, and currently works for a local furniture manufacturer.
Please note, this class is an introduction to the table saw for those with little or no experience with this versatile tool. If you've ever wondered about the world of wood working sign up and enjoy learning from a true expert.
After the initial demonstration, Jeff will be spending time in the wood shop leading guided instruction on the table saw for those who want to get some hands-on experience with the tool. So please feel free to bring a couple of things to cut to get a feel for the machine!
