I have had one for a few years. Never used it. Does anyone have/use one? If so how do you size the pieces to get a final dimension? Talking about half blind dovetails.

I am using 5/4 white oak. Originally, planned nice top with dowelled breadboard ends. Then I get this from my daughter. Guess I should have gone and got some 2x8's and slapped them together.
