11 must-have cabinetmaking tools

 

Saw blade cutting thru board
Get clean carcase cuts from a toothy blade

Few materials prove as finicky or frustrating to cut as splinter-prone hardwood plywood or melamine-coated particleboard. Rather than sand, patch, or hide tear-out, pick up a Freud Ultimate Plywood & Melamine Blade (thin and standard kerf models available). The 40° alternate top bevel (ATB) angle on the teeth -- twice as steep as most crosscutting blades -- shears the wood cleanly, leaving splinter-free cuts. And the high tooth count (96 teeth for 12"-diameter blades, 80 for 10", and 60 for 7 1/4") means each tooth takes a tiny bite.
