Sometime soon, I hope to make a coffee table and just working out the details now instead of when a problem arises. I remember a video of someone using a miter saw (with a normal blade) to make dados for half lap joints. I’d like to do this for the corners of the top of it but unsure if this would 1) be a strong enough joint and 2) can a miter saw make a smooth enough dado, if at all?
I know that the blade on mine now is ATB so obviously have to switch it out with a rip blade for a flat bottom but if I did that, would it be accurate for a joint?
Otherwise I’ll just use my router and a fence to make the cut but I thought using a miter saw might be easier.
Thanks in advance for the advice LJ’s!
