Thank you all for the spirited discussion.

Bentlyj, It is not so much that I don’t want to use the table saw, it is that I cannot get dead parrallel sides on my basic table saw. I can get to about 1/32” to 1/16” between the sides but not parrallel, plus the edge left by the router is much cleaner than by the table saw.

The jointing that I did on the router table in the manor we’ve been talking about was not a climb cut and was removing about 1/16” at the thickest part.

The real solution here is probably to build a sled for the table saw and get a smoother cutting blade, which is on the list to do…just haven’t built it yet.

Thanks again for all the input.
