I am trying to start simple and designed a bookshelf in sketchup to build in my garage. I sourced some 3/4 birch plywood and I would like to use stopped dados to hold the shelves. I have just starting puting together my woodworking tools and am hoping to get some advice on workflow. I have all the basic hand tools as well as a Bosch 4100 saw and a Milwaukee 5625 router that I have not purchased accessories for yet. I dont mind buying them if that is the easiest way to go. I tried setting up the freud dado set on the 4100 and it was just too clumsy to slide the 60” long panel across the 4100 with no real sled, feather board or assisstance holding the majority of the weight hanging off the saw. I am taking a step back to reconsider which tool and how to use it for this process.
My question is
What method would you recommend for me to cut stopped dados in large panels on the Bosch 4100 Worksite saw or with a Milwaukee 5625 router? .
