I needed to cut a lot of dados when building my router table, so I made a dado sled to clamp stop blocks onto so the parts would have some semblence of consistancy in the dado locations and sizing. I bought the UHMW runners, T-track, and a quarter sheet of plywood. The rest is leftovers and scrap. The leftover oak railing is actually a comfortable handhold to push with, and the oak makes me feel somewhat safer than softwood. If I push too far forward, the change in pitch and effort will warn me long before the blade comes through. If I am careless enough to let my hand slip over into the blade path. It isn’t likely that a dado will need to be cut that high anyway.
