Wow, that’s pretty good that it came out square like it did.

It’s good it was a three legged project to, since we all know three legged things never really wobble if they are out of whack. That will probably help people who’s project doesn’t end up as square as yours did.

Darn, Steve, I was always taught to never use the fence and miter at the same time. That it would cause something to bind and kick back. Not true?
Also, why didn’t you use a dado set? I
I usually do it the same way you did in spite of having a killer Systematic dado set just because I am too lazy to change the blades- and until recently I didn’t have a dado plate.
Surely that cannot be the case with you. . .???

@Donna – Kick back is only a concern when using the fence and miter at the same time during a through cut (Steve made a dado). During a through cut, the off-cut is left wedged between the fence and the blade where it has a high probability of vibrating/moving into the blade. The blade could then throw it toward you faster than Josh Beckett on cocaine.

Thanks for the clarification, Garage. I didn’t think that Steve would do something dangerous. Now I know.

Donna: I have a dado set, but didn’t use it for a number of reasons. Mainly, it’s just a pain to change blades and even if I do use it, I can never get a dado the right width on a single cut without tons of swapping out blades and shims and testing. I always end up doing what I did here, just with fewer passes. Secondly, showing how to make dados with a single blade is more practical to much of my audience who doesn’t have a dado stack or lives in Europe where dados are illegal.

As for safety, I didn’t even wear safety glasses while making those dados! Haha. (If I don’t show my face on video, it’s okay.)

Illegal! Didn’t know that either. I’m getting well educated. Bet really Steve, you should protect that pretty face of yours with at least safety glasses. I wear a full face shield most of the time (maybe even all of the time) while using the table saw.
Question a bit off topic- but I wonder if you (and others following here) have had a serious kick-back on a table saw?
