After using the jigsaw on several projects I have to say it exceeds my expectations. I do not have a bandsaw and have used this jigsaw to process non-dimensioned stock then worked the material with hand planes into dimensional lumber. Most recently I found an 8/4 slab of cherry that was 10" wide and 9 feet long. Using this jigsaw and a guide I was able to bring the edges and ends into rough square then work the rest into full square with planes. My table saw is not safe with a long board such as this and this jigsaw left a reasonable cut with no danger of kickback.

Once you have the four aforementioned handheld power tools in your arsenal and you've had time to get comfortable with using them, its time to make your first (and likely most important) major tool purchase. The table saw is the heart and soul of every woodworking shop, the centerpiece around which all of the other tools are used and organized, so you'll want to buy the best table saw that your budget can comfortably afford. Take the time to learn which features you really want and the table saw that best fits your budget and your needs. This article will show you the most common features, and how to determine what features you need and how to know if those features are really well built, or simply added on to the saw because they are selling features.

After you have chosen the perfect table saw for your woodshop, the next major purchase one should consider would be a compound miter saw. While not as expensive as a quality table saw, a compound miter saw is invaluable for cutting compound angles (beveled, mitered and combination cuts) on the ends of a piece of stock. Once you develop your ability to make precise cuts with a compound miter saw, you'll find that your circular saw spends a little more time in the drawer than it used to.

Cabinet table saws are not portable. They’re instead designed for use by professional woodworkers. That means that they’re designed to have a lot of power and to stand up to constant daily use. They have more steel and cast iron in their bodies to increase their durability, which also means that they tend to be lower-vibration than other units, which leads to cleaner cuts.
Many DIY hobbyists may be attracted to the incredibly low price and small footprint of the Rockwell BladeRunner X2. At just under 15 pounds, it’s light and easily storable, thanks to its very small stature. The 3,000 RPM max speed isn’t anything great, but at this price, it’s hard to expect anything more. It’s packed with gimmicky features that just don’t work very well, such as the rip fence, miter gauge, and the vacuum port. They would be great, but they just don’t function as well as you’d hope. The three-year warranty is a pleasant surprise though.
