Done the same way Leo Fender did back in 1946.
There is Nothing like the Warm sound of a pine wood cabinet!

Step 1: Measuring the four sections to be cut
I wanted the wood grain to match throughout the cabinet,
After purchasing a piece of select pine wood 1" thick 10" wide and 8' in length,
I carefully marked the 4 sections to be cut at 14.5" then 15.25" then 14.5" then 15.25"
Measure Twice CUT Once! Make sure to always were proper safety glasses and
read and understand the proper use of your power tools!
I used my radial arm saw to cut the sections.
Step 2: Numbering the cut sections
Step 3: Dry fit the sections
for proper assembly.
I dry fit them to see how the cabinet will look,
notice how the wood grain matches and follows
throughout the cabinet.
Step 4: Cutting the finger joints
I set up sections 1 and 3 in my finger joint jig
to be cut with my router.
1" stock is actually 3/4" thick, so I set the depth of cut at 3/4"
sections 1 and 3 start the cutting at an open finger on the jig
sections 2 and 4 start the cutting at the finger of the jig,
that way they are of set and will go together properly.
*Remember to ALWAYS wear safety glasses*
Step 5: Dry fit the cut sections
(finger jointing a cabinet can be complicated and requires
special tools and skills, so if you want you could skip
these steps and simply assemble the cabinet with out them?)
