    Congratulations on the new saw, Dave. Once you get used to it it will make things a lot easier. I envy you the space that allows for keeping the cabinet saw.

    The shop I used to work at has a Shaper Origin which they have found useful. They still hire me for cnc work so obviously it is not a universal solution. It is very low powered (think trim router)...

    I used these slides recently while helping out another shop with a deadline. They are more rigid than the Blum Tandems they usually use so better for wide drawers. Otherwise not so hot- the back...

    I don't think this forum is the wrong place for this thread, as "power tools" do need accurate setup which involves more or less precise measuring tools.

    Accurate results require positive holding of the workpiece in a flat plane, which seems to be missing here. An interesting concept but needs work.

    The o.p. said "I can usually cut a 4x8 into 8 pieces of 24" rounds (well 23.5" each instead)."

    I'm with Mel. If the stock is flat and the joints cut square and clamped up without distortion the result will be a flat panel. I glue up on top of parallel blocks on a flat bench rather than relying...
