Sample text

Using a square tooth blade, position the fence so the blade will cut to one side of the centerline. Raise the blade to 1⁄ 2" (13mm) high and cut a through groove in one edge of all of the rails and stiles. For the stiles, choose either edge for your groove. For the longer top rail, make the groove in the tapered, shorter edge. For the shorter bottom rail make the groove in the wider edge. This can get confusing, so mark the edges to be grooved. 6 To assure the groove is centered, make the first cut, then turn the rails and stiles 180°, referencing the other side against the fence and make the second cut.

At the table saw, raise the blade height to match the thickness of your plywood dial back. Set the fence to cut at the 71∕4" mark. Use your miter gauge with the auxiliary fence to cut a small notch into each support. Make the first cut with the end of the support tight to the fence, then pull away from the fence making a number of cuts until you’ve removed about 3∕4" or more of waste. Raise the blade to just below its full height. In this position, the cut will be more vertical and the pressure applied from the blade helps hold the stock to the table.

Set the blade height to intersect with the bead cut and set the fence to leave the 3∕ 16" flat shown in the diagram. To inset the front 1∕4" back from the sides, lay it on a 1∕4" piece of Masonite as a spacer; glue the two sides to the face. 29 The fall-off pieces from the front taper make perfect clamping cauls to exert equal pressure on the sides.
