While waiting for the finish on my porch table to dry I used up some small pieces of oak to copy the “dado stop” by Micro Jig. Kind of fussy to make but I had nothing but time to kill. I will say I went through a few design mistakes but all is well. I have not used it yet, but plans all for some dado work in the future.

This type should work very well and should be kinder to the tools.

Nice. I was thinking of trying to make one of those, too.
