A table saw might be the most important tool in any workshop. The primary function of a table saw is to cut larger pieces of wood into smaller, manageable sizes. A table saw is much more versatile though. They’re capable of ripping, crosscutting, bevel cuts, cutting rabbets and grooves, kerfing, and cutting joints.
