Time to drop my drawers and lose all my Neander-cred.
My favorite planing stop for drawers and casework is the rip fence on my $1,200 Unisaw. The rip fence is completely adjustable, at the right height for me (34″) and 100-percent stable. Also, the benchtop (cast iron and melamine) never needs flattening.
I’ve used the fence this way since I owned a Craftsman table saw in Lexington. If you haven’t tried it, Uncle Chris says it’s OK.
