Make the Second Cut
Stand the drawer front vertically for the next cut. Make the cut through the end of the board, holding the board tight against the fence. Make sure to hold the board above the cut area and out of harm’s way. Put the two boards together to make a lock joint. Remember to use glue to bond the joint. To make a lock joint on a table saw using 3/4" material, follow the first few steps up until step 5, cutting the rabbet. For 3/4" material, use a 1/2" x 1/4" rabbet; don’t use the spacer to make that cut. Then, raise the blade to 3/4" to make the vertical cut.
