Using your tablesaw to cut a notch into the ends of lengthy workpieces such as a chair leg, can be awkward and dangerous. Here's an easy and safe way to do it using your bandsaw. To form centered notches 1 34 " deep in the bottom end of a workpiece, position your fence 38 " from the inside of the blade, and set a stopblock for the 134 "-long cut. With one face of the piece tight against the fence, make a cut to form one face of the notch, rotate the leg 180°, and cut again, as shown. Repeat for each piece. Then, to remove the waste, move the fence approximately 18 " farther away from the blade. Make a cut, rotate the piece, and cut again. Repeat for each piece. Continue the shift-and-cut process to kerf the remaining waste. Now, using a sharp chisel, chip out the waste, alternately working from the edges to the center. —from the WOOD® shop
