Cut the dados in the side panels using this setup on your table saw or a straight edge and a hand-held router.The gauge block on the right of the blade keeps the panel from getting caught between the fence and the blade.
You'll need to notch the bottom of the side panel to fit in the leg groove.A backsaw makes quick work of this simple operation (above). Clean up the cut with a sharp chisel and you're ready to move on (right).
that conceals where the groove ends (see the photo above).
Before you can glue the side panel between the legs, you need to cut the 1/4"-deep by 3/4"-wide dados that hold the shelves. Use the diagrams at right to lay out the locations of the dados, then cut them using your dado stack as shown in the photo.
If all this seems complicated, the sides can be simplified. Make your side panels 9" wide instead of 93/4" and don't cut the tongues and grooves. Cut the dados for the shelves and then simply glue the panels between the legs.
The long-grain joint between the side panel and legs is stronger than the wood itself - you'll just have to be careful about lining everything up and making sure your stock is milled perfectly to avoid any gaps between the legs and the side panels.
