This project is actually pretty neat, another take on the saturated wood to make it more elastic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO7aFRO5WMw

That is much better than a nail stuck in the wood!

It was really hard to watch the table saw sequence.

Being new to wood working, what would be a good way to safely cut the block on the table saw? I haven’t needed to cut something that small but I’m sure the time will come.

A crosscut sled with hold downs or a microjig gripper. Dont ever do that. This guy could be the next 5 finger woodworker. Even worse, you catch the cut the wrong way on your wrist, and youll bleed out before help gets there. Another thing to consider, hope you have a cell on you, because nobody is going to hear you yelling for help over a table saw and dust collector. Im not trying to be morbid or paranoid but I am overkill with safety, I just cant help it.

I’ll have a grr-ripper this week. Would that work in that situation?

Id take a sled over a gripper, but a gripper over nothing. You can add a spacing block to the gripper which would help a lot. Personally I still wouldnt make that cut even with a gripper. Sled with hold downs and my hands no where near the blade, or dont do the cut is my advice.
