Quick Tip for Grooving a Dowel

Do you need to cut a groove in a dowel? (i.e. paper towel holder plan) All you need is a table saw and a couple of 2"x4" scraps. tablesaw-2.jpg (19218 bytes)
Wind the blade completely down into the table saw. Clamp the 2"x4" scraps to the fence near the blade.
Turn on the table saw and raise the height of the blade. As the blade cuts into the dowel, rotate the dowel. (The dowel should be rotated in the opposite direction the blade is spinning.)
Repeat this process to achieve the depth and length of groove you require.
