Rabbeting the back slats

Cut the rabbets at the ends of the back slats on your table saw. Install a dado head and adjust its width to slightly more than Vz inch. Then attach an auxiliary fence, position the fence for a '/-inch cutting width, and raise the blades into the wooden fence to notch it, making sure that the dado head is clear of the metal one. Adjust the cutting height to one-half the slat thickness and screw an extension board to the miter gauge. Feed the slats rounded-over side up, holding the stock flush against the fence and miter gauge extension while you make the cut (above).
