In this chapter I’ll be sharing some advanced techniques you can use on your table saw to do some amazing things. How about cutting coves for crown moulding? That’s just one application for a coved shape, and with a couple of simple jigs you can match any size cove you want.

And how do you get an odd-shaped piece of wood such as a tree slab into shape to move on to the next woodworking step? A couple of tricks with a sled make this advanced technique easy.

Pattern sawing is another trick I’ll discuss. If you have a project that requires multiple multi-sided shapes, this technique will save you time.

And finally, my favorite: How to bend a straight board into a curved board without steam bending. I’ll show you how to do it all with a technique called kerf cutting.

Once you try these advanced table saw techniques, there’s no end to the ways you’ll be able to put them to work in your woodworking projects.
