I didn't get anywhere near the amount of work done this weekend like I had planned. However, I was able to do some routing this afternoon on the rings. Routing sure makes a COMPLETE mess!!!!
Now what I need to do is set up the new Dado blade and go back over the verticals (uprights) and make sure I cut the slots to 1 1/8" or 1 1/4" depending on how they fit with the ribs (partial rings).
I think the pockets (above) turned out pretty good. I'm getting pretty close to being ready to test fit everything together.
