At least that is the way I do them. I’ve been working on a Cedar Chest lately, and needed a few Shaker Style raised panels. After cutting the blanks to the right sizes ( the top panel is 3/4” wider) I set the blade height at about 1/2” above the table top. Set the fence over so that a “tongue” would be to the outside of the blade. Ran all the edges through.
Now the tricky part (for me, that is) Re-set the blade at 10 degrees, and set the height to just “kiss” the tongue ( ah, not that kind of kiss, guys). The ends were then marked and run through with the miter gauge. A re-set with the fence and the sides were run through. A picture or two:
This shows the rip cut with the fence. Another view of the finished cuts:
Not too bad?
