Table Saw Tips for Woodworking Beginners

A table saw is an invaluable tool for DIY home improvement, having the ability to easily do jobs that other types of saws can not.

First, remember to always wear safety glasses when using a table saw. Bits of stray wood can chip off and fly up into your eyes, causing irritation and potentially permanent damage.

For clean, straight cuts that are sure to line up, make sure your saw is properly aligned. A blade that is not aligned correctly will make crooked cuts, and our joints between pieces of wood may not line up properly.

Never, under any circumstance, should your fingers be near the blade of the table saw. This is never a good idea, and there are no exceptions to this rule!

Familiarize yourself with the saw's safety features, and make sure you always utilize these tools. When used properly and all safety features are in place, tables saws are very safe. When the safety features are not implemented, tables saws can cause serious injury!

One of the most important safety features you can use on a table saw is a pushing device. The pushing device will allow you to push your piece of wood all the way through the cutting area of the saw. Always use the pushing device to reduce the risk of losing a finger!

Unless you are using a table saw accessory that specifically requires their removal, you should never operate your table saw without the blade guard and splitter installed. These are also very important safety features.

When setting your blade height, adjust so that the dips between the teeth of the saw blade are raised just above the top surface of the piece of wood you are cutting. Setting the blade at this height allows sawdust to be ejected from the cut while introducing cool air to the cut as well.

The rate of speed at which you push the wood through the saw is critical to the quality of the cut as well as your safety. Knowing the proper speed is largely a product of experience.

If your wood feels like it wants to ride up on the blade, or if the saw sounds like it is bogging down, you are pushing the wood through the blade too fast. This can also cause splintering along the edge of your cut.

Pushing the wood through the blade can cause burning on the edges of your wood. If you notice charred spots along your cut, speed up your feeding of the wood into the saw. Another sign that you are moving too slowly is that you will not be able to feel the blade cutting through the wood as well.

It is important to learn the feel of a proper cut rather than to cut at a set speed because different species of wood will cut at different rates. Softer woods like pine cut easily and should be cut faster to avoid burned edges, whereas harder woods like mahogany require a slower feed rate.

If you are cutting a very long piece of wood, it is very handy to have a friend to be your "catcher." As the piece of wood comes off the far side of the table saw, have your catcher gently grab the end of the piece and guide it off the table while keeping it level. Be sure that your catcher does not push or pull the wood in any way to ensure a straight cut.

Using these safety and operational tips should make using your table saw a fun, productive experience!
