Q: The shoulders of my tenons never line up perfectly when I cut them at the tablesaw.I use a dado blade and a miter gauge.What's going on and how do I fix it? Jeffery Lish, Castle Rock, CO A: A dado blade is a great way to cut tenons quickly and accurately.
But if everything isn't set up correctly, it's easy to get uneven shoulders, which makes it difficult to get tight joints.The good news is that by starting with square stock and dialing in your miter gauge and rip fence, you should be able to get clean, even shoulders right off the saw.
After ensuring that your dado set is square to the saw's table, check that the ends of your stock are square.Any angle on the ends will result in the shoulders on the edges of the workpiece being proud or undercut.
