Cutting the Box
You can do this either on a table saw or with a circular saw. Since my table saw was still not working, I used my circular saw.
Either way you cut the box start with the short ends first. The box should measure 13 1/4". The door will be approximately 3 1/4". I say approximately because you want to cut it where the finger joints meet. I marked the top of the box and set my fence in the correct position.
I placed a piece of tape over the cut line. This helps prevent tear out.
I tacked a piece of wood to the section I had just cut. I then flipped the box over to cut the other end.
When I flip the box over I supported it so it wouldn't rock on the wooden batten I tacked to the top.
I cut the other end of the box and tacked another piece of wood on the end.
I then cut the long sides of the box.
I marked each end of the cabinet body and the top. This is very important when the top is cut and adding the hinges.
I also marked the back and bottom of the cabinet body so I would remember which way is up.
