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.
