    Rob is there any reason you could not have made a quickie angle shelf to run router on and finish that dado? Seems like you could make one out of piece of scrap plywood and a 2x4 and add a fence and be a lot less work than using a marking gauge and chisel. Of course you would still have to use chisel for corners but something you do all the time.

     

    Something like this.

    I kept thinking the same thing why not route it.  Would have been a easy jig to make.

    Nice drawing and good idea.  If one thought about it long enough there are always several ways, in the heat of the moment the criteria I was working with was "what is the fastest way to get this done".  I think the way I did it would prove quicker than the time spent making the jig and getting it precisely set.  As mentioned, would still have to do the corners.  I tend to think hand tools as a matter of habit.  Thanks for posting that

    I agree Rob, and since your skills with a marking gauge and chisel are better than mine its easier for you to go the direction you did.

    On another note I have been watching the older videos over the last few months and there have been several times when I have thought, Rob, you need a gator drill guide.

    The Fisch bits work perfectly in them as well.  You should check it out next time you are at Woodcraft. The results are better than a drill press because its always perpendicular to the surface. I am suggesting you stop using the drill press but these things work great when you need them.

    Hi Rich,

    I think the easiest way is to create a "Member Album" (under "View Profile"), upload your image file to the album and use copy/paste to put the image in your post where you want it.  I click on the image in my member album to open it then right click it and chose "Copy Image" from the drop down box.  Use Control-V to paste the image into the post.  Of course I'm using Windows for this.  Haven't the foggiest idea how to do it on an Apple machine.

    Carry on.

    We grow more apples here in Washington state than any other place in the world.

    Oddly enough you grow both kinds in large capacities. Electronic ones and the kind that grows on trees!
