Table Saw Basics - Intro/Demo
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. Jeff will be offering a follow-on class for beginners, if you're interested, where you'll have a chance to get some hands-on experience on the Rochester Makerspace's brand new SawStop table saw.
