Table Saw Joinery Session 3: Cross Halving and Drawer Joints

If shadow boxes are on your to-do list, you’ll love the cross halving joint. It provides a great way to join pieces edge over edge. A shop-made jig makes perfectly sizing your parts very easy.

Drawers take a lot of abuse, and require great joints so they stand up to the test of time. A dado head and a few test cuts, and our drawer joint technique will allow you to create rock solid corners AND cut the groove for the drawer bottom, all with one set up.
