Default Slots for a CD Case

I'm building a large CD/DVD case 5 columns wide. Each column will hold 34 single standard cases and 2 double standard cases. What is the best way (jig) to cut the slots to ensure accuracy?

I'll be using black walnut. The single case slots are 3/8" with 1/4" spacing but I'd like them a tad wider. The double slots are 7/8". I'd like the CDs to fit so they slide in and out easily...that is, not too snug.

I'm open to any suggestions on how to accomplish this including using a dado stack.

Thanks,
Burt

Hi Burt

The best way is send off for the OP jig, it's made for box joints but it can be used in many ways see video..and so easy to use and your slots will come out dead on every time..

This is the lazy way but a lot less tedious then cutting slots and very accurate.
