I recently enjoyed completing a small keepsake box, but I’m wondering if there is a good blade for cutting the small pieces for the design on the top. I had good success with a crosscut sled that I built for this purpose, but when I cut the small pieces, small chips broke off from the trailing edge of the cut on occasion – not most of the time, but on occasion.
I use a 10-inch tablesaw with a Freud thin-kerf ripping blade. I have an ATB/R blade that I have used for general purposes, but I got lazy and left the ripping blade in the saw for this project.
I’m willing to live with occasional chipping, but if there is a better blade, I would appreciate your suggestions.
