    Could you show us a pic of the jig you are using, please, that may help to solve your problem.

    Man that’s a lot of dodos, I guess you’ve tries clamping down a straight edge and using a router. I would dado a full sheet and then rip it down. Are you building out your trailer? Ron Paulk sure has his looking good.

    Here is a link to plans for a nice, simple dado jig. The jig I use is very similar and it has worked well for me for a couple years.

    Personally, I think Paul may have went about it with the wrong orientation. Wouldn’t it work better to avoid the support shelf sagging problem to have vertical indexed slotted shelves instead? Who cares if a tool like a drill is standing up.

    Okay from what video you posted it looks like it should work . Is there play in your router bit collar .

    there is very little but i can’t figure out a good way to get a titer fit I’m using a 3/8 collar and made the tracking dado with a 3/8 straight cut router bit

    I’d suspect an issue with your jig.

    From the video, I would assume the router bit was used with a bushing guide?

    this guy in the videos, has some serious ocd. i bet this guy works alone, none of his workers, would put his tools back where they belong.

    this guy is dragging more weight in wood ,than he is in tools, in that trailer.

    Plywood is rarely the same thickness as it is sold as, usually 1/16″, unless, like Canada it is metric thickness (yet still sold in 4 x 8 foot sheets, go figure that one out). For a router dado you will want undersized bits specifically meant for dadoes for plywood.

    I find Ron Paulk to be on the upper end of what he does and I would never bag on someone with his expertise. I’m sure he is doing very good for him and his family.

    Some of these guys actually label where to tools go I know crazy.

    Plywood is rarely the same thickness as it is sold

    In the US the big box stores are required to sell plywood at the actual thickness not the nominal thickness Confuses the heck out of me looking for the 1/2″ or 3/4′ plywood.

    I think it’s a conspiracy brought about by router bit manufacturers…lol.

    I personally like cutting dadoes on the table saw, and although 8 foot pieces can be cumbersome, I find it easier than trying to use a router. The fence being locked in place means that you’re guaranteed parallel and matching dadoes. You may have to use a sled of some kind for the cuts too far from the edge for the fence to work, but still I think it’s better than router dadoes. I know people like them.
    If you do rout dadoes, use your longest, squarest square to set the jig, and do a test cut for depth and width to get the bit size right. If you need to make two passes with the router to get the width right, use an “auxiliary fence” butted up to your jig’s fence that moves the cut out the appropriate amount. That way you don’t need to reclamp it once it’s perpendicular to the edge of the workpiece.
