I have seen it I would not consider to buy it, as I have done the same on a table saw with a conventional blade, see my blog on it

Joints #3: Woodsmith Tip Rabbeted Miter Joint test.

Also the associated reply posts are worthy of reading
In summary
The same result can be obtained from a reverse miter joint bit.
Conclusion
In support of Andrews work I must say that if you were a drawer bandit it possibly may have an application, especially as the cut is not full penetration, however its only good for one size of material thickness.
I was impressed that he went and purchased a custom blade to do the job

I’ve seen it and I would buy it (if it’s under $200). It’s simple to set up and appears easy to use and only requires one cut per side. I believe that he has found someone to sell it but I have not heard when it will be on the market.

Here's the link if anyone would like to watch it. If the button doesn’t work you can search “drawer making blade” on youtube.com.

It can actually cut the joint in any thickness material by adjusting the dado width, and will do so much faster and more accurately than your method.

Not available until the end of May – frustration for all us early adapters.! One advantage i can see is in making veneered boxes, especially deep boxes like mid century nightstands. Its going to an awful lot easier to veneer a sheet of ply and then make the cuts instead of veneering the finished box.

Have your say...
