    I'm impressed. Looks like it would be a great tool.

    I thought I would just fast forward through it, but ended up watching the whole thing. Very clever.

    His joint looks like it would be much stronger than the simple folding miter I have seen used similarly. Very innovative and kudos to that guy for a clever spin. . Rockler, Fast-Cap and others promote these types of "inventions" although I don't know the details of interacting with them. I love watching clever people .

    Ingenuity at its finest, only thing i ask is whats the difference between what he is doing and one of those moulding discs that we can put in a table saw.
    It would surely only take a different profile cutter as he has designed.
    I hope he finds someone to help launch it as a product. Not sure how big the market would be.
    Would like to hear from some pros as to whether they would change their ways if they were able to get the blade with his profile.

    That's a great question. If you are talking about something like this cutter head my guess would be the dept of cut? I'd imagine doing a nearly full 3/4" cut might be a little much to ask of one of these molding cutters.

    Yeah Brent but you would just do it in multiple passes not all at once as his did.

    But if you were doing multiple cuts on a single board like he was so you could just 'fold up' the drawer, well, the multiple passes would be problematic resetting the fence and the height of the molder head.

    But if the molder head COULD take a full 3/4" pass, it would be way easier to just have a few knives custom ground. I just don't know how scary those molder heads are to use though.

    Having a custom dado head blade like that would take a bit of the pucker factor out of the whole equation.
