The panel saw has the ability to rip, crosscut and cut bevels. It's also handy for cutting and routing through sheet stock.

A panel-saw table gives a panel saw greater precision and versatility. A panel-saw table may be locked into place at various angles. The main component of the table is a large T-square with sliding rails. The square acts as a guide to ensure the saw makes perfectly straight cuts. A brace locks it in the desired position and ensures the alignment of the T-square.
To make a rip cut using a panel saw and panel-saw table, mount the saw perpendicular to the T-square, and lock it into the T-square's compression fittings. Push the saw down the length of the work piece. The T-square will ensure that the cut is perfectly straight.
To make a crosscut using a panel saw and panel-saw table, mount the saw parallel to the T-square. Push the saw along the T-square's rails to ensure a perfectly straight crosscut.
To make taper cuts with a panel saw and panel-saw table, place the work piece in position on the table at the desired angle. Screw a scrap piece of wood at the foot of the work piece to act as a stop. Screw another scrap piece of wood to the side of the work piece to provide a second stop. Lock down the saw perpendicular to the T-square, and guide it through the work piece.
