A jigsaw is a versatile power tool that allows you to make intricate and detailed cuts at just about any angle. This is a great tool for not only finish carpentry, but any project requiring precision cuts. Use a jigsaw on any type of plywood, tile, metal or lumber. Read on to learn how.


Use a jigsaw on softwood that is 1 to 1 ½ inch thick, or hard wood that is no more than ¾ inch thick.


Drill a ½ inch starter hole for cuts that start in the middle of the wood.


Use a coarse blade for quick cutting. Just realize the coarser the blade the more sanding will be needed later.


Choose appropriate blades for different materials. Check at your local home supply store for blades that can be used for metal and tile.


Position the saw shoe firmly on the work piece with the blade pointing away from the edge of the board.


Start the motor and guide the saw blade along the outside edge of your pre-drawn cutting lines.


Try the jigsaw when making inside corner cuts that have been started with a circular saw. Press down firmly on the saw and hold tight to the cutting line.
