I’ve been watching a ton of New Yankee Workshop lately. Norm Abram is the Bob Ross of woodworking; and Christopher Schwarz is right: Norm is hilarious. Roman Ogee, not Roman Orgy. Lolz.
It’s gotten me thinking though: what if I had Norm’s signature tool, a radial arm saw? It goes against everything I believe in (not really). But I do have a double bevel compound miter saw, so would halflaps on that be any slower or worse than doing it by hand? Probably not, and as long as I cut the shoulder by hand (so I knew it was perfectly square), wouldn’t hogging out the waste by power tool be okay? I already use a thickness planer on boards I made S2S by hand.
I’ll give it a try and see how slippery the slope really is.
