Make your index marks on the inner stock surface instead of the outer as you would when using a fence. This also means you may not need to remove them after assembly either, one more timesaving advantage of the Benchtop Reference Method <2>. Using an inexpensive padded float trowel, simply apply pressure to the work to keep it from slipping back while plunging the tool into the edge. Glide the tool effortlessly along all the index marks and rotate the work end for end to complete the slots- it dosen't get any easier than this. Incidently, this is the method to use for edge to edge joints as well.
