The central part of each closet consists of a cabinet with shelves that are to be 7’tall x24” wide x16” deep. Because I will need to join boards together to get the 16” depth of the side panels I will use biscuits to help in the alignment and strength of the glue joint. After resizing and jointing the pieces to get the 16” width I set up the router table with a 3/16” slot cutting bit and added bed extensions to support the workpiece.
By pushing the workpiece up to the bearing and going from one edge of the bearing to the other I can get a slot wide enough for the biscuits.
Biscuit slots complete
Boards ready for glue-up
Here are the 2 7’x 16” side panels after glue up and sanding.
