The Dado Challenge
Kevin Boyle and Jeff Mertz—the guys who design and build most of the WOOD® magazine projects—were discussing options for cutting bookcase dadoes one day, and began debating which tool would be best: the tablesaw or router. Soon, more of our editors were drawn into the discussion, and we decided that only a showdown could settle the debate once and for all. So we gave Kevin and Jeff the same assignment, but on different machines. Kevin chose the tablesaw, Jeff the router, along with a self-squaring straightedge and a guide bushing. The contest: to see who could finish first—with accurate results, of course.
