How would one make a dado joint cut in a 2x4 with a miter saw? Without risking serious injury of course.

Most sliding miter saws have an adjustable depth stop. One can set a stop depth and then take 1/8" nibbles safely then remove the remainder of the wood with a chisel. If I had to make dado joint cuts on a regular basis I would buy a router. If it was a one time project and if I had the time, I would use the method pictured at the start of this thread and repeated below my fellow hobbyist… Neutral

I suggest a good compound miter saw with a good set of blades. A chop blade and a finish blade for later down the road. and one of these to the cuts in the picture above my post.

Here's my Compound Miter Saw...
It's nothing to boast about. It's your basic home owners miter saw. It has some nice features but it's not designed for commercial use.
