I’d love some input on this one. I’ve been racking my brain for a way to do with without just nibbling away at it with my table saw.
I’m making a set if sushi plates for my father. I have a design in mind, but I can’t quite figure it out!
I need to cut two an angled dados into the bottom of the plate – at a 12 degree angle. The work piece is 10” by 6” and the two dados in each plate will eventually hold wooden runners that are serving as legs. When you look at the plate from the front, you’ll see the profile of the two legs each in the shape of a parallelogram. I only need to go about 3/4 of an inch deep, but the trick is that I want the bottom of the dado (closest to the top of the plate) to be parallel with the top of the plate. I hope that makes sense!
If I just put my dado blade in the table saw and tilted to 12 degrees, the top of the dado would be angled rather than parallel to the top of the plate. As I said, I could nibble away at it with a regular TS blade, but there has to be a better way. :-). Maybe?
Btw, I’m working with my tablesaw and a router table.
What do y’all think? Thanks, in advance for your help!
