Preparing the top panel and top trim piece for the backboard

You will need to cut a notch in the back edge of the top panel and top trim piece of the clock case to accommodate the backboard. Outline the notch in the middle of the edge of each piece. Leave the dado head and miter gauge extension on your table saw, but move the fence out of the way. To cut the notches, align the dado head with one end of the outline, raise the blades to the thickness of the backboard, and use the miter gauge to feed the panel into the cut. Then, slide the work-piece along the extension by the width of the kerf and make another pass (left), continuing until you reach the other end of the outline. Use the same setup to prepare the top trim piece for the backboard.
