This was my first major project for the shop. I took the idea from Matthias Wandel’s YouTube video and sized it down to something that would fit my shop. I cut the dadoes the semi-old fashioned way with a circular saw and a million cuts. Cleaned it out with a wide chisel. The top is several layers of plywood glued and screwed together. I finished it off with oak banding around the edges. Added a storage tray to the bottom (gave me a small project to try my Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig on).
