What Is A Miter Saw?
A miter saw is a power tool for making precise crosscuts and miters in a workpiece. It consists of a circular saw blade mounted on an adjustable arm, which swings up and down or left and right to make angled cuts.
The saw can be adjusted to make straight and compound cuts at different angles, allowing for more complex cuts such as crown molding and picture frames.
What Is A Circular Saw?
A circular saw is a handheld power saw with a circular blade that is used for cutting materials such as wood, plastic, or metal.
The blade rotates around an arbor, which is driven by an electric motor. A circular saw is one of the most versatile and commonly used power tools in a workshop and can be used to make both straight cuts and curved cuts.

What Is A Jigsaw?
A jigsaw is a power tool used for cutting curved and irregular shapes in wood, metal, or other materials. It uses a series of reciprocating blades attached to a motor that moves up and down to cut through the material being cut.
The jigsaw is often used to create intricate patterns and designs, as well as cutting shapes out of solid pieces of material.
What Is A Tablesaw?
A tablesaw is a saw with a circular blade mounted on an arbor driven by an electric motor. The blade protrudes through the surface of a table, which provides support for the material being cut.
Tablesaws are one of the most versatile and essential power tools used in woodworking and construction, allowing users to make precise cuts quickly and easily.

Whether they’re just getting started, or have been involved with woodworking for a while, many woodworkers wonder what woodworking power tools they should add to their shop.
What Is A Planer?
A planer is a woodworking tool used to create even and smooth surfaces on wood. It works by running a flat surface along the top of the workpiece in order to remove any ridges, bumps, or other imperfections.
The planer uses blades that rotate at high speeds and press against the wood in order to sand down any rough spots. It can be used for creating flat boards from rough-cut lumber, as well as for flattening and reshaping existing projects.
What Is A Bandsaw?
A bandsaw is a power saw tool that utilizes a long, continuous steel band, or blade, with a series of cutting teeth on one edge. It runs over pulleys and is powered by an electric motor.
Bandsaws are mainly used to cut curves in wood and metal but can also be used for other materials such as plastic and composites. The main advantage of the bandsaw is its ability to make curved cuts that would otherwise be impossible with a standard circular saw.

What Is A Router?
A router is a power tool used to route or hollow out an area in the face of a piece of wood or other material. It features a central rotating bit that spins at high speeds and has variously shaped cutting edges for creating decorative patterns, bevels, and grooves. Routers can also be used for shaping edges, cutting mortises, and routing channels for inlays.
