Plywood should come in two thicknesses: The nominal thickness, and a thickness matching the dado you just made.

I think they make dado sets specifically for the size of plywood

Try being in a cabinet shop…..........Seems like every bundle you get any more the thickness is different. Nothing nominal anymore.

ROFLMAO – yeah I wish they would make it like that too.
I bought a set of “plywood sized” router bits… such luck there either.

Heck, I just wish I could buy plywood with veneer thicker than a single layer kleenex and no defects on the good side. I can work wiith the thickness. Can’t work with the other.

another option is to cut a dado of a certain thickness then cut a rabbet on the plywood sheet to match that thickness then slide the two together.
