If I showed you how to start woodworking with just a handsaw + nails and you strike out on your own becaming adept, you’d probably invent a speed square, a miter box, and even glue.
But before you start carrying around a truck full of hand tools, it’s my responsibility to introduce you to the modern table saw. At least before graduating you from -b̶o̶o̶t̶c̶a̶m̶p̶- apprentice to full-time carpenter.
This isn’t on aspiring woodworkers. It's on their instructors.
