I read an article a while back about this master furniture maker
(I saw his stuff and it was at the wow! level, Queen Anne
and Federal I think). He used a table saw he had built
in the 1930s or 40s. He used steel rip or planer blades
he sharpened himself – no carbide. Since his work was all
in solid wood he didn’t see much point in making clean
cuts with his wood-topped table saw. After cutting his
boards he would let them move, then fix the edges.

He did have a point. His work would sell for a lot of money
but his machines were primitive.
