In the third installment of our three-part series on cutting dadoes with hand tools, George Vondriska teaches you how to clear the waste out of a dado by using an uphill stroke with a bevel edge chisel and a mallet. He demonstrates the simple woodworking techniques you’ll need to properly shape the dado, stressing the importance of not prying on the material.
