Hi, I'm Chris Palmer. Today, I'm going to talk about how to make angled cuts on the table saw. The table saw is an effective place to make angled cuts. Number one, you can angle the blade and between 15 degrees and straight up and down, and that way you can either rip a bevel onto your piece, or you can cross cut and make save picture frame type of dimensions. The other thing you can do with a cross cut sled is tack a guide at the angle you wish to cut and make cross cut bevels that way. Also, if you're extremely careful, and with some practice, you can make freehand cuts without a fence or a table saw. OK, here's one example of how to make an angled cut. I've set my blade to a 25 degree angle and what I want to do is just put a chamfer on the edge of this board. So, the finished face is up. I'm going to set my fence so that the blade exits my work piece at about midway through. And I'm going to use my push stick. Safety glasses, here on protection, very important. Thanks for watching. I'm Chris Palmer. That's how you make angled cuts on your table saw.
