Working on my first project with breadboards…..
My glued up top is 19” wide x 3/4” thick and I’m using a rabbet bit on the table router to put a 3/8” long x 1/4” thick tounge centered on the end grain.
On my bread boards, I need to cut a groove that is 1/4” wide (centered) by 3/8”+ deep. But I don’t want it to go all the way through on one end, so the toungue and groove joint is not visible from the front.
when I cut the groove in my bread boards….should I…
1. cut the toung on the panel end grain first and then cut the groove in the bread board with a stack dado on the
2. cut the grove in the breadboard first with a 1/4” dia. bit on the router table and then sneak up on the tounge thickness by making test cuts and raising the router bit on the table router untill I get a snug finish.
3. some other way?
and when i attach the bread boards, should I …
a. glue along the entire width
b. only glue a percentage of the total width, with no glue at either end? And what % gets glue?
Thanks in advance for any help.
