Building A Garden Bench

A dado head on a table saw cuts a dado in the front leg of a garden bench. Each front leg needs three dadoes—two on the outside face that match rabbets sawn into the end and stretcher rails, and one on the front edge for a rabbet in the front seat rail. In the setup shown at right, stop blocks clamped to a miter gauge extension ensure that the dadoes in the two legs will be in exactly the same locations.
