Let me put it this way.Your Table Saw is (or at least it should be) the heart of your wood shop.Maybe you don't realize that just yet.But as you learn more and build more, you'll find out soon enough.The number of things you will do, and the things you can do, all on your table saw, will most likely make it the central, most important tool in your shop.
That's why it's the one tool I actually spent some real money on.It's the one tool I went all in for.It's the reason I decided to run 220v to my garage.It's what I make most of my jigs for.And it's what I use the most for any project, without exception.
Am I saying you have to have a high dollar table saw to do any good? No way, not even a little bit! I went years using a contractor grade 1.5hp Craftsman table saw.It even had the aluminum table, which is not ideal, but that's life.
And with the cheaper saw, I still was able to learn many cuts and joinery techniques.And I was able to build some really nice furniture projects with it.Yes, you really can build a wood shop around a table saw.
