Here is another nugget Howard (Woodcraft) imparted on me: One should have 4-6 teeth in the cut, i.e., if you are cutting 3/4” stock you should use a blade with 8 TPI. 8 TPI will result in 6 teeth in the cut (.75 X 8 = 6). This does not apply to resawing.

-- Measure twice, cut once. If it still doesn't fit get a big hammer.
