Thats basically the same Idea I have or do. My primary machine in my shop is my RAS and I tend to set it up and make multiple pieces at the same size when I need them. I like the accuracy it has. However sometimes you can get a little over confident and miss that little wood sliver that has come off and lodged itself between your next piece and the fence or stop and boom, you are not cutting pieces that are not long enough or no longer straight.

I was just curious if I have taught myself wrong or if it is the norm to cut as you go. So only a few responses but I think I am on the right track. Thanks.
