Hi! This is Jon behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we will be cutting out our back piece. First I am going to use the panel saw to cut it 69 1/2. Next I've set my table saw at 21 1/4. Lastly we just want to dry fit our back piece just to make sure that it fits. If it was too big, I would recommend taking whatever side was too big for the joiner and take off about a 32 second of an inch and just keep doing that until it fits nice and snug.
