Actually cutting a finger joint ( box joint ) is not as difficult as you first may think. In fact a lot of Do It Yourself stores keep special newbie stencils or jigs for creating your own box joints. I keep on referring to box joints and this can be related to the actual history of the finger joint. centuries ago ( long before the introduction of cardboard and other man made materials ) produce for commercial areas like markets had to be kept and transported in low quality wood boxes. The woodworking finger joint was commonly used in these boxes to hold them together.
Finger joints are very strong when compared to the normal dovetail joints because they have more area for gluing. If you are looking for examples of finger joints then they are commonly found in bedroom drawers and commercial cigar boxes ( this will give you a good visual aid for a finger joint ). Most wood joints need certain types of screws or certain types of nails. The woodworking finger joint ( or box joint ) does not require any of these and is just as strong as a nailed/screwed joint once constructed.
Stacked dado is another one to mention. It has two outer blades along with number of chip cutters that cut dados. Inserts are made of metals. Changeable inserts are available in table saws. With the help of plastic or wood it is known that insert of zero-clearance can be made. This kind of zero-clearance insert is useful because it avoids tear outs by giving support to the wood nearer to blade thereby making a clear cut. Splitter is a projection situated at the back of the saw blade and it is vertical.
