No– Your tablesaw is NOT trying to kill you! Getting More from your Tablesaw Than you ever Thought was Possible– with Bob Van Dyke

VanDyke L fenceThe tablesaw is one of the most basic and common shop machines in use– but it is it is frequently misunderstood and it is rarely used to its fullest potential.

In this unique demonstration Fine Woodworking Magazine Author & Director of the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking, Bob Van Dyke will begin with a review of basic techniques and concepts for safe and effective use of this shop workhorse.  Bob will go on to concentrate his demonstration on the many uses of a little known tablesaw fixture called an “L” fence. With this simple and ingenious jig, tasks such as cutting any angle at all, flush cutting to a pattern and cutting concentrically larger or smaller shapes become safe, accurate and incredibly easy.

We will examine the many practical applications for these unique techniques and then go on to explore techniques for cutting accurate shoulders on curved furniture parts, simple techniques to cut angled tenons and safe and efficient ways to cut bevels on large panels without getting any burning.

Bob's presentation assumes a working knowledge of the tablesaw and will focus on techniques specific to furniture making. This is not a beginning tablesaw demonstration!

This comprehensive demonstration will leave you wondering -“It is so simple! Why didn't I think of that!”

Tuition: $85.00
