In this episode I cut the dados for the 2 middle panels. Then I dry fit the top bottom side and middle panels. Then I get the measurements for the door compartment shelves. I am cutting dados that are 1/4 in deep and 5/8 in wide. I am using a ryobi 5/8 in straight bit to cut the dados and it worked better than I though it would. In part 2 I had said that I was going to use the T square I built for trimming the panels down to size as a straight edge for my router. It didnt work like I thought it would but for trimming panels down to size theres really nothing that works better. I had a problem when I was dry fitting everything for the first time but other than that everythings working they way its supposed to. Knock on wood.
