BCT Kerf Maker put to good use for the first time

I used the Kerf Maker yesterday. Worked perfectly!
These 8 muntins will go in the top sections of the head board and foot board to my "Towers" bedroom re-do project
I snapped the pieces together and today hopefully I will glue them up and run them through the drum sander to a finished thickness of 3/16". The dado half laps and rabbets are 1/8" deep, and 1/2" wide. The pieces of wood are 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick. Dado half laps were cut with a stacked dado 3/8" wide with help from the Kerf Maker to establish dado half laps the correct width, 1/2" wide. Cutting with the stacked dado set this eliminated the need to clean up the bottoms of the joints. Rabbets on the ends of every piece were cut with the aid of the rip fence acting as a length stop, miter gauge and my regular TS blade. I had to putz around sliding the pieces back and forth along the miter gauge fence to clean up the bottoms of the rabbets. Cutting the rabbets this way took me about 15 minutes, cutting the dado's with the help of the Kerf Maker took about 3 minutes, there was no tweaking necessary. 56 pieces of wood total, 96 total joints.
