Yes! a Dado stack… of course… I have one, I never use it I always just pass it though the saw a few times instead but for this project, where I need a good supply of the aforementioned trim it’s well worth me setting up and doing it this way.

The ripping blade I’m using is a dedicated CMT flat grind blade, it’s a lovely blade, but it’s a way better idea to setup 1/4” dado and get it done.

...and the L stock, I’ll just dado that leaving a 1/16” on one side to trim off later (upside down), in order to keep the stock stable as it runs through the saw. Thanks Steve and Ken )
