I made this Router Dado Jig from scrap 3/4 plywood and it only took about ten minute, but it works great. As soon as I can I’m going to build one from solid wood since the plywood tend to splinter the more I use it. I followed the plans given by Ed Pirnik
I needed this for my next project, is a shelving unit for my shop. It was fun to make and part of my learning curve as a Newbie.

Looks a lot like mine. I’d suggest you consider making it out of 3/4” Baltic birch, which is far more dimensionally stable than either regular plywood or solid lumber. Another alternative is MDF particleboard (|1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&facetInfo= ) which is not only dimensionally stable but uniform in its thickness. Also, you can finish the jig with polyurethane to prevent splintering. Just something to think about.
