Lock-Rabbet Drawer Joints
Steps 2 - 4
2. Readjust the fence-to-dado set distance to match the width of the rabbet cut in the gauge block. As shown in above illustration, the edge of the rabbet should meet the dado set teeth closest to the fence. Use a square to hold the gauge block 900 to the fence.
3. Position a drawer front on edge with its back face against the fence. Now, cut 1/4x1/2" grooves in both ends as shown left. Do this to all of your drawer fronts.
4. Once again, the gauge block helps you precisely set up for a cut. Position it as shown left to reset the height of the dado set to 1/4" high. Do not change the position of the fence.
