Have you considered other tasks (besides ripping) that you will be doing in your furniture making? I regularly cut dadoes, rabbits and tenons on my TS. I’ve also used it to raise panels, cut large coves, make box joints, and probably a number of other tasks. All of these tasks could be done on other tools (assuming you own those tools too) but I find the TS to be the one that does them most efficiently. If you’re going to trying to produce furniture for profit, you have to remember that your time is money too. I couldn’t imagine trying to build furniture for profit without a TS.
