Are you talking about splines on the inside of the miters or visible across the miters on the outside...?

If on the inside, the tearout can be cleaned up and hidden...

If on the outside, a table saw spline jig would be better...

Using the router table for an outside spline, even with a spiral bit, you may experience some tearout and need to find a way to use a backer board.

Whether router table or table saw, the jig would look similar...

They will be on the outside corner, I have a jig for my table saw now so I guess that I need to purchase a flat tooth blade. I wanted to make some the splines 3/16" I assume that I have to run them thru the saw twice.
Agreed...I don't think it's worth the aggravation to try to set up a dado arrangement...not sure you can get the dado down to 3/16 anyway.

Make the first cut on all the corners (1/8"), then go back and make the 2nd cut. This way you only need to adjust the fence once.
