Thanks for everyone's input. I should have made it clear that I agree
that this is only a push stick and the
cut does not need to be dead square, but I was also thinking about
similar cuts found in other furniture
pieces, which is why I wanted to ask about the best technique for
obtaining good accuracy. Your advice
would help me with those future cuts.
============It's similar to a very long tenon, but too long to cut with a tenoning jig.
The other options are to nibble it with the tablesaw, maybe with a stacked
dado, or on the router. All said, the bandsaw is the best tool.
Anyhow, I appreciate everyone's input on this matter. I'll stick to
the basic hand tools for now.
=======Yup. I'd reach for the ryoba and a paring chisel.
A definite brain fart. Skip the hardware; glue alone will suffice. The point
being, rotary cutters aren't well suited for inside corners. Absent a need
to adhere to arbitrary aesthetics, the same function can be met by building
up the piece rather than cutting the notch.
