Sizing the strips

Both the long and short strips must be trimmed to fit inside the frame. Lay a short strip across the frame and adjust it until the distance between the last dado and the frame is the same on both ends. Make a mark on the strip (right). To trim the strip to this mark install a regular blade in your table saw. Next, reposition the miter gauge extension so that when the last dado is fitted over the key, the trimming mark is lined up with the blade. Trim the ends of this strip, then trim both ends of all the short strips the same way. Repeat this procedure to trim the long strips.
