Earlier, I had made the dado along the top and bottom rails of the side panels which accept the internal upper and lower panels. Since the distance to the top isn't indicated anywhere in the plans I made them at 3/4". Later when I made a few practice runs at the dovetail which lock the panels in place I realized that the pull out panel is higher and wouldn't fit under the desktop. Deepening the dado it slides on would only cause the bottom to drag and I didn't want to rout all those top and bottom rails all over again. So I made the executive decision to saw the pull out in half and run it through the planer.
