If you have any kind of a shopvac [though the bigger the better] try
hooking the vac to where that bag hangs. Sometimes a Fernco fitting
from Lowes/Home Depot is the best way to attach them.
And visit some woodworking sites that talk about the dangers of table
saws. Always stand to the side- and after you see the speed at
which a table saw can toss wood at you you'll become a more cautious
Oh- and make some push sticks and featherboards as your first project.
Watch your fingers.
I was doing something similar to this making pieces for a doll house.
I made a push stick that was as wide and long as the piece I wanted to
rip then pushed the stick through the saw to cut a grove in it. The
back of the push stick had a heel the same thickness of the material I
was cutting about 1/8 inch. It took longer to make the push stick than
rip all the little slats.
