« Part 1: Motivation & Research Part 2 of Router Cabinet Redo series Part 3: Base & shelf »

Today I am doing the left and right sides of the cabinet and also the back..

Let me start of by stating that I am building individual components of the router cabinet, assembly will not really begin until I completed all joinery and insert every material into to the cabinet because when I built the last one I was working in such tight quarters for things such as drawer slides installation was a night mare and installing the inner parts such as the walls to define the router cavity I decided to build everything that I could first and then begin assembly.

The panels I just completed for the left,right and back pieces as all the same type of joinery.

The stiles and rails all fit together with dado and tennon joint and then I created the panel by using my table saw to cut rabbits on each side of the panel to create almost a breadboard end for the stiles and rails to slide into place, all I used glue but I might introduce another mechanical fasteners.

Next: Building the base and middle shelf that will start to define the router cavity
