There are a number of woodworking skills that you’re going to need to know how to do, and learning how to make rabbet joints is one of those. The following are a few things to know about creating rabbet joints:
A rabbet is basically just a groove or a dado on the edge of your wood piece that creates a lip. That lip can then fit snuggly into a groove. The rabbet joint is incredibly useful for furniture construction that uses panels, such as a small dresser. It’s also very useful for cabinet construction. In fact, they’re very handy for cabinet sides since rabbet joints make it easy to connect the top. When you’re using rabbet joints you can use screws as well as glue to seal the pieces together.
When it comes to making the rabbet joint, you can use a lot of different tools, including routes, table saws or a rabbeting bit. The best way to make them is by using the table saw for the bulk of the work and then finessing the joints at the workbench.
