Oh, those grooves look rounded at the tip. Did you drill the ends and cut to the hole or use a Dado or what?

I’m betting hole saw then cut to it.

The first one I tried drilling holes aand cutting g with a skill saw but it wasn't working out very good so I did the rest with the table saw. I am not sure If that is the piece that I did drill the holes.

I just put all the shelves in a stack and screwed them together and
then cut the slots with the stack upright. I just used the regular blade and went through 3 times and the cleaned up anything that was missed.

How does the ramp door work out for you? I wanted to get swinging doors but no one has any in stock with a 6'6" ceiling.

I prefer the ramp actually, much easier on a set of, ah, maturing knees. Opening is also tall enough no threat of whacking my head unlike with the side door.

I haven't been in and out the back much yet but I think that would be just the opposite for me. I think the opening might be taller on the side door. I just measured the opening height of the back door today and it is only 6'2 so will have to watch out for that.

I don’t have that issue, I only the standard issued Lappin height of 5’10”.

My maternal great grandfather was only 5’3” and my paternal grandfather was 5’6” so I guess I should be happy with what I got. Moms Dad was 6’1” but I only got his hair, which means I have more than most guys in their 30’s.
