Festool How To... / Re: How Do I Make an Angled Dado?
« Last post by derekcohen on Yesterday at 08:59 PM »
Begin with the side of the leg angled, so that the mortice is square to this side. Rout the mortice. Now saw away the side of the leg to create the angle you want to end with.

That would be an straight forward solution if I hadn't already milled the legs to size!    [embarassed]

Then glue on a fillet, and re-shape to square. Now rout, and re-saw.

Interestingly enough, this table will have NINE legs!  What was I thinking???

I need to make stop dadoes for decorative panels in six other legs but these are not angled.

Fortunately, I can use the same jig with some minor modifications. 

As with the angled dadoes, I will be using the guide stop adapter with micro adjust (not pictured) on a 1400 router with the support foot (not pictured).  An inline toggle clamp will allow me to release the wedge square and change out the legs.

If you are used to using a Skilsaw and making plunges with that and then trying to make plunges with the track saw the same way you probably will have kickback.  If you are trying to make a plunge cut with the Festools for instance there is a plastic anti kickback block that you install on the rail.  If you are cutting material down to size it is best to have the saw fully plunged before the blade enters the work piece.

I hope you don't take this the wrong way.  The track saws are just different.

Hi Peter, the table and benches are beautiful, and will be a nice way to start putting your stamp on the new home.

I hope the move goes smoothly.

Wouldn't this be a great application for a domino? Not to route the mortise obviously but to make angled joints in general.

The new New Brit Workshop is being created right now. I have some guys doing a dry lining job in what will become the workshop and the electrics are nearly done. I have some floor levelling, sound proofing and fitting out to do (about 4 weeks work) and hope to be fully operational by the latter half of October.

It has been quite a challenge trying to keep in touch with my YouTube and FOG friends whilst dealing with some quite poor internet service. I am now fully connected and my video upload speed has increased by a factor of 50 times.

Cheers.

Very neat Seth!

Your stick propping up the lid reminds me of the time (Warning! Way off topic) James Brown’s Cadillac stretch limo pulled up to the entrance of the National Video Building in midtown Manhattan. I was visiting my wife at work. MTV had studios in the same building and the King Of Soul was booked.

As I checked out the hot tub in the back of the limo one of the Mr. Brown’s assistants came out to get something from the trunk. He held the lid up with one hand then reached in with the other and pulled out a chartreuse shag covered 2x4 and propped the lid up for good.
