Top woodwork again.

I have built loads of cabs, all but joints. Tried my first rebates on a Cubo 18 recently.
I think all is well whan using decent birch, the stuff I was using wasn't, just some normal.
Shant be rebating again unless it's birch, not good. smiley11

A high rmp router and a top quality cutter is the critical bit........ the trouble with wpb ply and the even cheaper stuff is it splinters rather than cuts.... try cutting it 2mm at a time or less....... birch ply is nice to router, my router is happy cutting birch 4 to 5mm in one pass.....
