A flush-fitting half-lap joint begins with setting the dado blade to the proper height.Start with two pieces of scrap the same thickness as your workpieces.Set the dado-blade height to just under half the thickness of the scrap.
Using the miter gauge to guide the piece, cut a rabbet in one end of each scrap.With the two pieces resting on a flat surface, test how the rabbets fit together.Adjust the blade height until the faces fit flush with no gap between the rabbets.
