I ca do it with my router table, but then I must sand to finish.I have a dovetail plane and dado plane from them which definitely count into my favourite tools. They wind up being a very good combination of what I want from a workhorse and...
A recent source of lust.
Are you guys talking about carry permits or just gun permits, period?
Don't confuse ribbing for hating, I really don't hate any of the regular participants in this thread. Some comments I find annoying...but thats another matter.
