Hey all, I’m doing a project where I need to make deep and wide dado joints. It’s a rack with 1-1/2 thick walnut shelves, 18″ X 18″. The legs would be 2″ X 2″. I completed one already but I made the legs out of cherry and I don’t like how it looks, so I’m redoing it with walnut legs. I routed the legs to fit into the shelves and I routed the shelves 1/4″ deep to lock the legs into them. The routing process took forever, I had to make small cuts with a 3/4″ bit until I got the desired depth and width. My question would it have been easier, while maintaining close tolerances with a dado blade? Thanks for you advice and input.
