Patron – its over 1 1/2” thick so ive got the room to remove some more material but ill certainly keep an eyes on the thickness. Its the bottom of the board so its not the end of the world either.

William – I know exactly what went wrong. The second time i placed the piece over the dado blade my cruddy old miter gauge slipped and it cocked the piece making the blade take a huge bite as i had the blade rasied up to the kerf i had previously cut. (I pulled it out to see if i could fit my sausage fingers under it.) The blade grabbed it and chucked it, bounced on the blade twice then spit out on the floor. Didnt break though!

CJ3 – its headed back to the router planer sled jammy i built to flatten it originally … then another hour or so of sanding.

-- Its not a crack, its a casting imperfection.
