Cut Dadoes with a Standard Blade

Even if you don’t own a dado blade, you can still cut dadoes on the table saw by making multiple passes over a standard blade. When using a standard blade, aligning the shoulders of the dado accurately to the blade is the most important part of making the cuts. Here’s a simple jig you can build in your shop to help you do that. See drawing below for dimensions.

When you're ready to give this jig a try, go to our step-by-step instructions for making the cuts on the next page.
