Re: Starting out?
i have to disagree with rusty
if you are going to be building furniture using primarily hardwoods, then a tablesaw is a must. of course a jointer and a planer are going to be needed too
if all you want to build are basic plywood boxes with trimmed edges, ie kitchen cabinet type stuff, then yes the tracksaw type system is the way to go, but building furniture from solid lumber? no way
handling and cutting sheet goods is where the track saw system stuff works great, but working with solid rough cut lumber for say a set of dining room chairs? not a chance
