What is the most versatile saw for woodworking?
The table saw, in my opinion, is the most versatile tool in the shop and should be your first major purchase. Next up is the Miter Saw. The miter saw does one thing but it does it really well. The Miter saw will cross cut wood better and faster than pretty much any other tool.
Are dovetail saws rip or crosscut?
The two dovetail saws are filed with rip teeth to cut along the grain of the wood, as most dovetail joint cuts are rip cuts. For other fine joinery and small projects that require cutting across the grain (e.g., cutting the shoulders of a tenon), the small crosscut saw is ideal.
Why can a tenon saw only cut straight?
A tenon saw has a reasonably large metal blade that is bigger than a coping saw, but smaller than a standard cross-cut saw. Its blade is usually rectangular in shape, with cutting teeth on one of the longer sides and a rib or spine on the other. The added strength makes the saw perform very well on straight cuts.
