The tablesaw is the cornerstone of most shops, able to cut precise dados and rip full sheets of plywood with ease. Still, many woodworkers aren't using this tool to its full extent. This collection of articles from Fine Woodworking magazine remedies that. Written by experts, these 26 articles cover every aspect of the subject and is an ideal reference for woodworkers of all skill levels. Section 1 covers techniques, including a basic primer and articles on safety procedures, cutting coves, and template cutting. Section 2 on joinery features box joints, dovetails, and tenons. Section 3 goes deeper into safety aspects: dust-proofing, tablesaw guards, and preventing kickback. Section 4 explores reproducing a project and creating a one-stop cutting station. Section 5 covers shop made accessories. With plans and instructions for building a variety of jigs and accessories, and a wealth of color photos and black-and-white illustrations, Working with Tablesaws is a welcome addition to the home workshop library.

The author opens with lamenting how he wished he had this book when he bought a table saw at a garage sale and could never get it to cut straight because it was not tuned properly. However the book fails to mention how to properly tune and align a table saw. There is plenty of information on cutting coves but nothing on more likely beginner task cutting the tapers for table legs. While this book does have value to the safe use of a table saw it is a hodgepodge collection of past tablesaw magazine articles.
Check out from your local library first and see if your skill level is above this book. I found similar information in several other books but this one is very comprehensive and economical.
Looking for a gift for your woodworking husband. These are a great series and a great way to say, "I love you!"
