A Better Mousetrap?
One last thing I'd like to share, if you've ever made a finger jointed box with a panel floating in a dado/groove you know you can't cut that dado all the way through the finger. What's required is some chisel work to stop the cut. I used my test pieces from setting up the finger joints to support the sides of the piece as I cut the stopped dado. Of course, you could also use your router to cut that and not have much to square off but who wants to take the time to set that all up and then listen to the racket! I used a dado blade in the saw and needed to square off the ends of the dado.
