    I'm going to start putting up my top and bottom moldings on my kitchen cabinets. As we all know, kitchen cabinets aren't cheap and I paid a nice amount for good quality cabinets. My question is, since I don't want to mess up these moldings, what amount of teeth on a blade should I use? I'm using...
