Well today was not a good day. I measured the spot for the 1st dado 3-4 times. Thought that I was dead on. When I went to check it I was at least 1 inch off. Then I realized that I di not take into consideration the bottom piece. The inside dimension is going to be 12 inches. I thought about modifying the design slightly, but that would compromise the whole thing. So tomorrow I am going to start again. I now know the dimensions needed. So now I will make the dado @ 9 inches. I still have 2 fresh sides to use. I can salvage the 2 mistakes and hopefully use them for the top shelving unit or under the window.
Back to the proverbial drawing board!!!!!!! I have pics taken will post tomorrow
Keep the sawdust flying.
