O Table Saw

Table saws are nifty tools
But not for goofy shiftless fools.
Fingers are worth too much you see
To danger-dangle fecklessly!

So know your stuff and keep things cool
When working with this power tool.
A pushing stick is just the deal
To keep you safe and keep things real.

Start with ten and in the end
Leave the shop with ten again.

We show you how to cut these joints faster and easier by also using a dado set and Rockler Cross Lap Jig.
