I know, not my best work... (though I appreciate you're just having some fun with it!)

One of the limitations of the jig I used for this project is that while the slot you just cut fits over the key fairly well, it's not a perfect fit, and the error in spacing of the slots accumulates across the width of the joint. It's not a coincidence that the gap you see is at the top of the joint (the last slots cut since I started at the bottom of each piece.)

This became more significant on the taller drawers, to the point where I had to take care to gently bias the piece each time against one side of the key. Doing this consistently for both pieces yielded acceptable results, but it did take some practice...

Bryan,

Gosh and Golly, with all my latest systems having adopted Dolby Atmos 7.4,4 configurations, I wish I could have foreseen the Technology and pre-installed 4 Ceiling Transducers for you.

With the coming of Atmos, and the speaker positioning difficulties, dispersion requirements, cosmetics and expense that many must face have gone even further to justify the relevance of the Audio Transducers.\\Now if you ever decide to re-do the Drywall Ceiling in your Theater, or overlay it in Mahogany Paneling, you be sure to give me a heads up!

I'm itchin' to revisit that view off the rear deck!

Thanks, Maurice, but the ceiling is a combination of fiber optic stars with a perimeter of mahogany. Such a retrofit would be quite destructive, so Atmos for me is going to have to wait for theater 2.0, i.e. likely never...

Oh...I realized all that....and I was only thinking about units around the perimeter area between the outside edges of Star Fields and and the Wall / Ceiling junctures where you do have Mahagony. Yeah, I was only lamenting / wishing........had I only known, but at the time of installation, who knew?

PS....when there is carpet above a room I often gain access to ceilings via that route, but I seem to remember a lot of wood flooring in your home's 1st floor so............
