~ 19in. x 33in. of 1/2" ply
~ 16in. x 30in. of 1/4" ply
1/4 in. upcut bit
1/8 in. upcut bit
1/4 in. upcut bit - for cutting.
1/8 in. upcut bit - for pocketing the narrower 0.2 in. slots and the interlocking joints.
For each piece, pocket and cut to line all of the insides of the joints. The long 0.2 in. slots on the side/smaller pieces should be cut to a depth of 0.2 in. All other joints and slots should be cut to a depth of 0.25 in.
Because of how Shaper makes pockets, and isn't aware when it can over cut the line, to clean up some of the joints, you have a couple options:
1. clean up the ends with a chisel or pocket knife and a steady hand.
2. change your cut type to go on the edge for those edges of pockets that will be cut away in a subsequent cutting pass.
When I built mine, I chose the former, because I wasn't clever enough to have though up the later yet.
Remember to always do you shallow cuts before you cut your piece free, but you knew that already.
Finish with some sanding a glue, perhaps a finish nail or brad, if you'd like to stand on it. Sand to taste.
