    All-
    I'm planning for a cabinet build for something like a Marshall 1974x combo.

    I have a woodworking question for those in the know. I'm trying to figure out how best to cut a groove for the piping that runs across the top of the cab, from front to back.

    The piping I'm gonna use is 3/32". I have some plans that call for a 1/8" wide by a 1/8" deep groove, cut with a table saw.

    I guess the question is what blade to use. Do they come in separate widths?

    Generally, is there some kind of a blade that is preferred with birch plywood?

    Yes, the measurement you'll be looking for is the kerf. The width of the cut.
    Kerf will vary depending on what the blade is designed for.


    Yes. You'll get the smoothest cut with a blade designed for plywoods and laminates.
