    Default Making Supers

    Was wondering what machinery would be necessary/perferred to get started making supers. Type saw, blades, etc... Would most likely go with rabbit joints. Thanks

    Table saw and dado blade, or any kind of saw to cut your boards to length and a router for your rabbet joints.

    I use a compound miter to cut the boards to length (or have Lowe's do it slightly proud if I'm lazy), then my table saw to rip to exactly width. I don't have a dado, so I make two cuts for the frame rests. When I get my new shop set up, I'll switch over that task to my router table & rabbet bit.

    chop saw for cutting to length..with a butt plate set up so lenghts are exact..marking with a pencil and cutting each time is too much trouble...

    after the length is cut, the rest is done on a table saw..

    making supers and frames...

    i just butt the ends together and use galvanized screws to hold my boxes together...

    If you rip your boards to width first you can use the rips for other things like lids and bottom boards. If cut to length first you have a lot of "too short" lumber.
