Kerfmaker ad nauseum. Made from walnut.
It was good way of eating up a couple of evenings in the workshop. I really don’t make dados on the table saw like this but I made to work on my accuracy and to try out the new setup on the table saw.
I made a couple of test cuts by making a bridal joint from a piece of scrap MDF and BB ply. The joint came out a little to tight for my liking. I had to knock it together with a mallet. Better a little tight then a little loose I guess.
I made a couple of errors in the design because I didn’t fully understand how it worked. Luckily, I was able to recover from the errors. I had to cut the tops of the thumb nut slots because the slots were too narrow and my hands too fat. Looks like crap but it works.
Well I’m off to put some BLO and wax on her and I’ll call it complete.
Oh, and it will work up to a 3/4” dado blade setup.
