Learn how to use a jigsaw with this in-depth 30-min. tutorial. If you've ever wanted to get started with power tools, I highly recommend getting started with a jigsaw. They're the least intimidating, are versatile because they can cut wood, plastic, and metal, and they can be affordable. In this in-depth tutorial, I walk you through WHY you need a jigsaw, HOW to get started, the parts of the jigsaw, and HOW to cut wood and metal. I also share with you my favorite jigsaw blades for cutting laminate, wood, etc. for getting the best results.
