That’s cool. I don’t think I ever thought of that or saw itin a book before.

THANKS Blaine! That is a very practical tip. Now I’ll have to make some raised panel boxes. LOLI don’t have anything finer than a 40 tooth combo blade. Will this work? All the other tablesaw cove techniques I’ve seen run the workpiece across the blade at an angle rather than straight across as you did. Why? Added to favorites!

thanks loren, its very safe to do because there is no danger of kick back, you can only take off 1/8th at a time as a rule of thumb because you don’t want to hit the blade body lust the teeth and not to put much side thrust. just make sure your fence is clamped down very tight.

it will work andy just go very slow. i believe running at an angle you get an elliptical cut but not sure. i have always done it at 90 degrees.

Fantastic technique I’ll have to try that. I know it’s for the video, but I would recommend a dust mask.

NOTE!!!! put fence always so the rear of the blade is doing the cutting. if you try cutting with the front of the blade it will shoot the panel at you. the way i did it in the video the blade is pulling the panel into the fence SO MAKE SURE THE FENCE IS SECURE!!!!!!!!!!

Interesting technique. I wouldn’t try it with MDF as the dust can and will play havoc with your lungs – it’s really nasty stuff if you don’t wear a mask or have some efficient dust extraction system in place.Jim

Very interesting technique

@jr45 i have been working with mdf for over 30 years and my last check up at the doctor 6 months ago i had clear lungs. this is just a quick at home job for a friend and i have no dust collector at home but i do use the 50 horsepower one at my real job. hell if the dust doesn’t kill me the marlboros might. just thought i would share some millwork. this is paint grade.

OK. Just thought I’d mention it as we hear so many stories about the dust from that stuff, especially if you don’t have a good extraction system. Your 50HP system is clearly doing the business for you.Jim

Thanks for showing the technique, but videoing against the light from the open door meant that your camera auto-brightness system darkened the actual cutting area so that I could not see what was happening on my screen – frustrating, as I was very interested in what was going on. Your comments near the end explained things, but it would have been nicer to have been able to see better. I tried playing with my screen settings, but still could not get a good view!

i am sorry don i should have done a different angle.

No need to apologise, I just want to get a better view of your next video LOL.
Also, its nice to be your buddy – but I’m not doing much at the moment as I seem to be waiting for Spring to arrive.
