We invite you for the third class in our 4 part Table Saw Mastery Course. This class is all about ripcutting and we are going to teach you how to build the ultimate rip cutting jigs for joining boards and cutting tapers safely and precisely. We will also teach you about tenoning jigs and ripcutting accessories for the Ultimate Crosscutting Jig we built in Level 2. We understand that this is a challenging machine to fully understand, so we designed this course of study to guide you in mastering the table saw.
In Level 3 we will take a deep dive into the complex world of advanced ripcutting on the table saw. It is easy and safe as long as you understand the physics for each scenario and use the right tool for the job. Lessons in this class will include standard methods for ripcutting with the rip fence, jointing jigs, tapering jigs, crosscut sled accessories, and tenoning jigs. We will begin by teaching you to make accurate rip cuts, resaw, and tapers using a variety of tools and table saw accessories. Each student will then build accessories to expand the functions of the ultimate crosscut sled they built in the Level 2 class. These jig accessories will expand the sled for safe and accurate specialty rip cutting operations. Be sure to bring your Ultimate Crosscutting Sled to this class to make sure your fixtures fit correctly!
Please note, this is an active hands on class in which you will use the machines frequently. Please bring clear, clean safety glasses, hearing protection (we prefer over-the-ear muff style hearing protection as they fit more securely, provide better decibel reduction, and physical protection in the event of flying debris). Wear comfortable close-toed shoes and work clothes with no dangling drawstrings, baggy sleeves, etc. Seats are limited, and we will only offer this class once per year. So be sure to register early!
