Paul Sellers inspired bookcase kick plate Dado done.

One more to go.

I wasn’t prepared for how much different it is to try to cut a Dado along the grain. The fit is snug thanks to Paul’s cut the face and then measure the back line of the dado with the board inserted. I’m amazed how this works every time. I can hear him saying, “self supporting”. Mine is self supporting so I give myself credit for that and the front joint line is pretty crisp and the board sits in square. Time will tell when I go to glue it up.

I used the router plane to make sure the short dado was at the same depth as the shelf dado. One done. One more to go.


About senrabc

Hi, this is not really about anything. Just me testing the intertubes with my own random meanderings and thoughts. Ostensibly, big word, I’m using this site as my personal log of sorts. I’m a random guy with 4 kids and a beautiful wife living in sunny Florida. Pardon the gratuitous posts with pictures of cute kids. I have an iPhone and can’t help myself. My day job is working in the area of informatics at the University of Florida where I like the shell. Oh, yeah and incase you can’t tell I like woodworking with handtools. Goes along with my command line philosophy 😉 Thanks for reading. Christopher P. Barnes
