    Wardrobe shelves

    Greeting y'all

    I'm planning to make some shelves in my son's wardrobe using 97"x12"x5/8" melamine and my SCMS.

    My question is does anyone have experience cutting dadoes in this stuff using only a thin kerf 100t blade on an SCMS? What was the process used? What was the end result? Would you do it again if you had to? Why or why not?

    Thanks,

    Yann

    yann, a router will give you much better results.....there`s a glue known as "roo-glue" that`s used to glue directly to melimine so no need for dados unless you just want dados?......tod

    I understand a router or even a table saw with a dado set would give much better results but I don't have access to a 5/8" straight bit or a dado set for a TS.

    That glue you mention sounds like an interesting option.

    Or I'll just screw an 1/2" lip to the wall and let the shelves sit on that.

    I'm just looking for something at my skill level that looks nice.

    Thanks,

    Yann

    Yann, I am not sure how you would go about using a SCMS to cut dados??? I think your best bet would be to invest in a router. This is after all a great "new tool" justification. The blocks would work fine also. For a closet, that may be your best option.

    By moving the board a 1\8" at a time and sliding the saw over
