The cleanup center is an open case with heavy-duty sides and back that are tied together with shelves and dado joinery. The cabinet is sized to fit a 30"-wide roll of kraft paper (see Sources on page 51).

• THE CASE

Building the case out of V plywood gives the cabinet lots of strength. To make it sturdier, the back fits into rabbets cut in the back edges of the sides. Plus, the shelves are anchored in dadoes cut in the sides and the back (Figure 1).

After you cut the dadoes for the shelves, you'll need to make a third dado for the paper roller. But this one is a little different.

Kraft Paper Roller. Because of the weight of the roll of kraft paper, it's best to use a 1" wood dowel to support it and to act as a roller. To prevent the roller from pulling out when you're tearing off a sheet, the

dowel rests in notches in the sides. So, the first step is to locate the notches for the dowel (Figure 1c). 1 used a Forstner bit and drilled the notches V deep to provide solid support for the roller.

Roller Dado. The next step, as Figure Ic also shows, is to cut a l"-wide dado that aligns with the top of the notches This allows you to slide the a>ller into the cabinet and drop it into place. Since most dado blades will not cut that wide, you may have to make two passes, sneaking up on the final width. With the dadoes complete, you can cut the rabbets in the sides for the back (Figure la). Then, you can tackle the storage compartments.

Storage Compartments. To fit

and install these compartments easily, go ahead and assemble the sides, back, and top shelf. You don't want to put the lower shelf in just yet, because it'll interfere with installing the compartments. You can slide it into place later.

Inside Out. Figure 2 shows how the compartments fit together. The easiest way to put them together is to build from the inside out in a step-bv-step process. As I said ear-
