Re: dado fingers question
I found that I only need to put glue on the short sides. Each finger and across the face, is fast enough that the glue does not set up on me and all fingers have glue. I drill and counter sink the holes on every other finger (kid job) before glue up. Clamp, square and shoot two screws (2 1/2”) into each long end only (since they are screws I only need to do the long sides, they will not pull out). It was great with kid help but when he is gone I do not always get a nice square end so I am building a Harry posted except with clamps.
