a = 1/3 of the thickness of the wood.

b = the thickness of the wood.
For example: If the wood is 45mm thick, then the trench will be 45mm wide and 15 mm deep. Likewise, if the wood is 1-1/2" thick, then the trench will be 1-1/2" wide and 1/2" deep.

cutting frame rebates and trenches

You can cut out a trench by using a circular saw. Set the blade in the circular saw to the required depth and make multiple cuts across the cut-out area, and then clean out with a chisel.

You can cut a rebate with a bench saw or a circular saw. First mark the rebate i.e., along the face and the edge. Set the blade in the circular saw to the required depth and run a cut along the marks, both face and edge.

Note: The off-cut from the rebate can be used as a beading to hold the glass in place.
