This saw is intended for laminate floring, but you can use it for hardwoods for sure. I did not have any laminate projects going on, but I did have some toung and groove porch slats to cut. First you can do all the same stuff with a chop saw / miter saw on a stand. The downside to that is it is going to cost you $200 for the stand and another $250 for the saw of any real quality. The other downside to that setup is size, its huge and takes up tons of space and a pickup or van….. See where I am heading. The Skil is good quality in a small package that is portable for any vehicle. Cuts well. Dust is a problem as with any project. Makes nice smooth cuts, accurate and sturdy. Priced right and will pay for itself in one floor project easy.
