Chris, you cut your dadoes on the table saw or router table? I don't have an actual dado set for the PM66 (yet) but DO have the Diablo "box joint set",

https://www.amazon.com/Freud-20T-Joi...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

just 2 offset flat bottom blades, do either 1/4" or 3/8" dados depending on whether you mount the two blades face to face or back to back.

I still need to build a couple sleds, next time I see a "deal" on baltic birch might grab some... Steve

Got all the drawers glued up and sanded and finish on the bottom large drawer. Used Watco danish oil finish. Had 5 quart cans partially full that I mixed together, mostly medium and dark walnut. Next to attach the drawer to the slide and then see what spacing between drawers will work for the rest of the drawers.

3-4 more drawers to finish and install the slides on. Have to stop over at Bubba's tomorrow to get some more slides. Started with 5 1/2" tall drawers, except for the large lower one, then decided I need some thinner drawers so my initial count of drawer slides was a little low.

Some pics progress so far. The snow, 5-6 inches, over the last few days has put me a little behind schedule. The metal frame has tapped holes to attach the slides so varying the drawer height has led to some variation in gaps between drawers. I guess if you want symmetry then it would bother some. My goal was functionality so symmetry was not important to me.

Last sentence is me usually when I am making something for myself. Six months later it starts to bother me.. At least you could just plane the top edge of the drawers to make the gaps the same.
