The very first project I built (for the woman who would later become my wife) was a bookcase from construction-grade fir joined with dadoes. I formed them with a table saw, and just let me say that I could have fit the joints better.
Since that time, I can’t even guess how many dadoes and grooves I have machined, and I have gotten much better at fitting the joints. And now Rockler has come out with a Perfect Fit Dado Jig for routing that I think is a great new product for making these machining tasks even easier.
But there are many ways to solve a problem in woodworking, so check out Chris Marshall’s video below on the same topic. You’ll be groovin’ in no time.
