How much space do you leave between the edge of the material and the dado?I cut a ¼" deep dado in the sides and back to accept the bottom panel the shelves (if fixed location) and the top. The sides are also cut to recieve the back panel.
Screws go in from the outside to hold the shelves in place?... I will drill through from the inside on the center line of the dado so that I have accurate placement for the screws I will use to hold it together while the glue dries.
I don't quite understand how you angle the brads from the inside. Maybe this ties in with my earlier question about dado setback from edge of material?Otherwise, if the end panels are exposed I will use glue and angled brads on the inside and clamps outside.
What are "pocket screws?"...pocket screws and attached with biscuits and gravy (glue) or just glue and brads.
