Cut slots for the panel

Switch to a 1/4" slot cutter in your router. You could use a 1/4" straight bit instead, but the slot cutter allows you to work with the pieces lying on their faces instead of balanced on edge. It's safer and more precise that way. Set the slot cutter to extend 1/2" from the router fence, as shown in the drawing. Then, run the inside edge of each stile and each rail through the cutter to form a full-length slot.
