Marc Sommerfeld’s techniques all revolve around his quick setup ideas. He has the dial-in jigs and more. The idea with the matching bits, whether tongue and groove or rail and stile, is to have you drop in the bit and make the cut knowing it will be perfect. Does it work perfectly every time? I don’t know.

I always want to do a test cut before I commit to my good wood. Even my blog posts about flawless setups — and they are flawless — aren’t enough for me to ignore economy and just jump in with a cut on expensive hardwood without testing it.

While I strive for repeatable setups, I’ll always do test cuts.
