    Re: Starting a cabinet and a very messy work bench!

    I also like flush doors and drawers; both of which I have yet to master to my liking.

    What I have come to learn is that if a side or front is proud (offset) of the other then it must be reconciled before cutting the dado for the bottom to fit. If you don't, the corner of the bottom will not fit into the intersecting dados because one dado will be shifted the amount of the offset.

    The key is to plane, starting with the thickest part of the offset, with successive longer strokes until your strokes are several inches long otherwise when you mill the dado the side following the rip fence will not be able to follow the acute angle. Make sense?
