Here is one more vote fot using a circular saw and taping and scribing
to reduce splinters. I can not iagine a situation where one would have
to resort to using a table saw for this cut. Very dangerous and

I forgot to ask, I remembered just now that I've sold my worm drive Skill
Saw, and now only have a battery operated saw like that, it only has a 5 1/2
blade, it is one of them 18 v jobs. Will that have enough torque to do the
door job we are talking about?...........Peter
Even a hollow core door would be difficult to place on a tablesaw for
cutting 1/2" off one edge. Use a straight edge and a circulars saw or
a good quality jigsaw. BUT, before you start, see if you can determine
how thick the solid strip at the bottom really is. On some HC doors,
1/2" would be too much to take off.
