Yo whats up everybody this last week I have been trying out some new router bits and yesterday I started working on another book case for my dads new office. Out of all the shops this is the first one that has a real office in it next to the shop. So the book case im building is 28 in tall 20 in wide and 7 in deep. The sides are short enough that I can use dados to hold the shelves but I dont have a dado stack at my house so I used a standard tablesaw blade to make the dados. It took about 20 minutes to make the bottom dado on each side because I would set the fence make one pass then make a second pass just to make sure everything got cut then do the same for the other side then move the fence. The reason why I couldnt use dados on the other book case is because the fence doesnt reach out far enough. But today I have to cut the second dado and put a round over on all the edges. There will be a tool life audio podcast out today.
