Often the joint compromise: visible at one end, concealed at doesn’t need it. For instance, edge-to-edge or the other. jo_050_059 4/6/05 2:55 PM Page 51 S P L I N E D 51 Clamp a small piece of 1⁄4" hardboard in a vise and snap it off. Do the same with a hardwood ripping of the same thickness. When I did it, the hardboard broke pretty cleanly, right at the vise’s jaws. The hardwood broke at the surface, then pulled some long fibers. Spline Materials The nature of the spline can have an impact on the method you use to cut the grooves.

Edge bevels may be most accurately cut on the router table. Use a chamfering bit of the proper angle. But bear in mind that cross-grained cuts are taxing for the router and bit, and the cut quality will probably be marginal. So edge bevels, yes; end bevels, no. With the workpieces beveled, lay out the spline groove on one piece. To avoid weakening the bevel tips, locate the spline slot very close to the joint’s inside corner. No more than a 1 ⁄ 8" from it, I’d say. This placement simultaneously allows a 3⁄ 8"-deep cut without weakening the stock.

The rabbet is cut in one pass. No need to change setups for the shoulder but and bottom cut. No staged cuts to nibble off the waste. • One setup completes the job. Where the proportions of the workpiece allow it, use the rip fence to guide the cut. Don’t fret about the width of the dado stack so long as it exceeds the width of the rabbet you want. Clamp a sacrificial facing to the fence and bury the cutter in this facing. The sacrificial facing should be, at minimum, 1 ⁄ 2" thick (3⁄ 4" is better).
