    Another great video, Steve. Quick question. When cutting thin strips like you did, is it safer to have the thinner part on the outside of the blade rather than against the fence? I would think having the thin piece against the fence might cause it to kick straight back. But I’m no expert.

    I watched that one and was thinking about cutting the splines to thickness. To make this repeatable wouldn’t it be easy enough to make a block for the other side of the fence that you can drop into the slot int the table for repeatably on the thickness

    Why not use a biscuit jointer and biscuits to achieve the same effect?

    It is all good, BUT: Your blade is leaving a U-shaped bottom in the slot for the spline (see last pic), so the spline doesn’t fit flush into it. I know there are “flat bottom” blades, but they are expensive and changing a table saw blade for a few splines seems like a lot of extra effort. Is there another solution?

    If one uses a rip blade to cut the spline grooves, the bottom of the cut will be square rather than pointed as shown in the video. Rip blades are ground so that they cut square across the wood when cutting a partial thickness groove. Combination blades & cross cut blades generally have an Alternate bevel grind that leaves a “v” shape at the bottom of the groove.

    Thanks for all the great tips.
