No saw blade will give truly finish-ready cuts, but good TS setup and good blade selection can help. Plan on at leaTipst some light sanding prior to adding stain/clear coats. Stock saw blades are notoriously poor performers, and most cheaper blades at the homecenters are similar. You can do better with reasonable cost blades like the Irwin Marples series at Lowes, or the Freud Diablo series at HD, DeWalt Precision Trim, CMT ITK Plus, or even the Oshlun line. For more money, you can get even better blades from Freud Industrial or Premier, CMT Industrial, Infinity, Amana, Forrest, Ridge Carbide, Tenryu. Guhdo, etc. Plan on spending at least $30 on a decent blade.
