Hey, Dale -

Pics are always nice, but I think I get what you’re talking about. I probably should have mentioned that this is the table I bought:

As you can (hopefully) see, it has a 3/4” track running the width of the table. This is why I was thinking of some kind of miter gauge.

Two questions about your set-up:

1. do you clamp the workpiece to your jig? If not, how do you prevent the workpiece from getting a mind of its own and jumping out of your hand?

2. if you don’t use your fence, how do you know where to position your workpiece so that the cut is of the correct depth?


PS: I really don’t mind spending a little money on this, if it will take some of the guesswork and risk out of doing these cuts, which appear to be a bit tricky.
