I obtained some free plans to make a dinner table and the instructions call for a 1" dado blade cut in the apron.
Instead of using a dado blade can I use a router bit or a Japanese pull saw.
I'm pretty sure I can, but are there any disadvantages to using these options.
I only see myself making one major project per year and I want to minimise costs. I don't want to buy an expensive table saw just to support a 1" dado blade. The lower line of portable table saws only support a 1/2" - 3/4" dado blade and I don't want to cut twice.
Any suggestions would help.
